Notices

Winter session financial aid is available to students seeking a degree from Virginia Tech.  Due to the limited availability of financial aid, funding is not guaranteed.  Students must register by November 3rd to be considered for this aid.  A separate financial aid application is NOT required.  Click here for more information on Winter financial aid.

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a program that provides part-time employment opportunities to eligible students to help meet the cost of education.

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships are managed by the Graduate School and can be in support of general administrative duties, teaching assignments, or research projects

Grants are awarded based on the student's financial need. Like scholarships, grants do not have to be repaid.

Virginia Tech offers several types of loans from the federal government based on the financial need of the student.

Scholarships are similar to grants but they are awarded based on student qualifications and usually include an application process. Scholarships do not have to be repaid. 

Waivers

Waivers are similar to grants in that they do not have to be repaid, however, they can only be applied to Virginia Tech tuition and fees charges
