VTAG deadline approaching

Don’t miss the deadline for the VTAG scholarship!

If you are a Virginia resident and plan on attending a private, non-profit college this year, you most likely qualify for the Virginia Tuition Assistant Grant. The amount of the award can change annually based on what the General Assembly does, and the maximum amount for 2014-15 is $3,100 for undergraduate and $1,550 for graduate students.

The deadline for applying for the grant is July 31! 

How do you apply?  The application can be found on the SCHEV website here.  If you are not familiar with VTAG, the best place to start is to call your private college’s financial aid office and make sure you are going about the process in the right way.

This is low-hanging fruit when it comes to paying for college and most schools do an excellent job of communicating with families about VTAG.  However, with summer schedules and vacations, deadlines can creep up on you. Don’t miss this one! 

SCHEV also provides a detailed brochure about VTAG if you’d like more information.
