No. Although all services are free to qualified participants, we do not directly provide financial aid. We can assist you with the financial aid application process, GI Bill® benefit coordination, and scholarship applications. If you elect to apply to UCO we can request an application waiver for participants who enter the STRIPES-VUB program BEFORE submitting their application to UCO. We also offer a small monthly stipend for eligible participants who fully participant in program events and workshops after acceptance into the STRIPES-VUB program.
