The purpose of the Virginia Commonwealth Award is to assist undergraduate students with financial need and graduate students to pay part of their college costs. The funds are appropriated directly to each state-supported institution. Funds may be used for need-based grants to Virginia resident undergraduates or for grants or assistantships to graduate students (both in-state and out-of-state). Virginia Code requires that the awards to undergraduates be proportional to need so that the students with the greatest need receive the largest awards. Undergraduate students must demonstrate financial need as determined by the institution. Graduate students must meet requirements established by the granting institution.
