Anyone who submits a VU scholarship application will be considered for an award. All scholarship categories will be considered by a committee that will review your qualifications. the committee's goal is to distribute more that $1,000,000 to those who are most qualified and/or most in need. Though you may receive multiple awards, you can only receive one academic scholarship. Scholarship applications submitted after the deadline are not eligible for Val/Sal, Presidential, Blue & Gold, and Academic Honors Diploma. We also highly recommend that every family submit a FAFSA each year, even if you do not feel you will qualify for federal or state grant aid. FAFSA deadline is March 10.
