Cal Poly’s MPS in Dairy Products Technology program will participate today in the Veteran’s Grad School Virtual Fair, a virtual recruiting event designed to connect veterans with graduate schools that participate in the Post-911 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program.
More than 250 veterans are expected to participate in the virtual fair and will have the opportunity to communicate with 83 graduate programs registered for the event. The MPS program welcomes veterans, and many of the program’s industry partners prioritize veterans in their hiring initiatives due to the practical skills, maturity, and leadership experience gained through military service.
Cal Poly is a participant in the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program, which pays all in-state tuition and fee charges at public schools and tuition and fees not to exceed a national cap at private schools. Out-of-state students and those attending private schools may receive additional funds to help cover unmet costs under the Yellow Ribbon Program.
The Yellow Ribbon Program was established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program allows institutions of higher learning (such as colleges, universities, and other degree-granting schools) to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the tuition and fee amounts payable under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
The Grad School Virtual Fair is operated by CareerEco, a virtual recruiting platform and talent community for jobseekers, prospective graduate students, academic institutions, and employers who leverage the power of technology and embrace innovation in order to accomplish their professional and academic goals.
