Does STRIPES-VUB provide financial aid?

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.
