We award nearly $4 million annually in scholarships to current students. Our scholarship awards are established by alumni, individuals and organizations, and recognize factors such as financial need, academic achievement, service and leadership. These scholarships are a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. Visit our Scholarships page for more details.

Financial Aid

The VCU Student Financial Services team is available to support you through the process of applying for financial aid and budgeting for your education. Visit the SFS website to estimate your tuition, connect with a peer money coach or learn more about financial aid and expense planning.
