Have you thought about attending one of Virginia’s outstanding private colleges or universities, but are concerned about the cost of tuition? Well, now is the time to take action because Virginia residents who attend a participating private institution within the Commonwealth are eligible to receive a Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG). The maximum annual VTAG award amount for undergraduates will increase to $3,100 for academic year 2014-15.

Applications are available at the financial aid office of the private institution the student plans to attend.
