Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG) is a non need-based grant for Virginia residents attending a participating Virginia private college or university. Funds for this grant have been appropriated by the state legislature since 1973. While the maximum award is authorized each biennium,the amount is not guaranteed and can vary annually. The exact amount of each academic year’s award is determined by the available funding and the total number of eligible applicants. If funding is insufficient to fully award all students, it is possible that the spring award will be adjusted and some students will receive no award. The college financial aid office will have the most current information about the expected maximum award. Click here to access the 2011-2012 VTAG Application.
