May 18, 2012 — May is National Military Appreciation Month, and Palmer College of Chiropractic is proud to serve our nation’s military personnel and veterans through the Yellow Ribbon tuition assistance program and by providing complimentary care in the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics to active-duty military personnel and their families, as well as disabled veterans.
Beginning in August 2011, qualifying veterans were able to apply to Palmer’s Yellow Ribbon Program, which covers full tuition costs for eligible veterans for up to one year. Palmer’s participation in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ “Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program” (Yellow Ribbon Program for short) enables U.S. veterans attending or enrolling at Palmer to have all of their educational costs covered for up to one year that are not already covered by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.
In addition to several current students who are veterans and were accepted into the program, two new students were initially admitted under its auspices and began their studies on Palmer’s Davenport Campus in November 2011.
Palmer College has renewed its annual agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to continue offering the Yellow Ribbon Program in 2012, and currently there are seven students enrolled under its auspices. There are five students enrolled on Palmer’s Davenport Campus through the program, and two at Palmer’s Florida Campus in Port Orange, Fla.
More information on Palmer’s Yellow Ribbon Program is available on the Palmer website at palmer.edu/yellowribbon.
