the program allows a scholarship from hinds to cover out-of-state fees for veterans whose military benefits do not cover all the tuition and fees at the college.
“our college is proud to be a part of the veterans administration ‘yellow ribbon program’ to assist hinds out-of-state veterans in paying for the out-of-state tuition and fees,” said dr. barbara blankenship, district dean of students.
hinds community college has a full-time employee handling veterans affairs at the college. ryan braswell, coordinator of veterans affairs, can be reached at 601.857.3226 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
the post-911 gi bill already covers in-state tuition and fees for military veterans. the va is matching hinds community college’s contribution in order to ensure the military veteran doesn’t have to pay.
