Virginia Commonwealth University participates in several state and federal grant programs. These awards are need-based and do not require repayment.

To be considered for any grant at VCU, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and have the results sent to the VCU Office of Financial Aid. Information provided on the FAFSA should be complete and accurate. Failure to resolve any application-processing problems, or delays in resolving the problems, may prevent students from being considered for a grant.

Grants are not automatically renewed. Students must apply annually and continue to meet eligibility requirements and satisfactory academic progress standards.
