Does U.Va. offer financial aid and merit scholarships?

Yes. U.Va. also began a new financial aid program in April 2004 called Access U.Va. This program funds full grant aid to the lowest income students and places a cap on financial aid loans students receive resulting in more grant aid.

In addition to need-based aid, the University also offers the Jefferson Scholarship to approximately twenty-five entering first-year students each year. The Air Force, Army, and Navy ROTC detachments also can help arrange for non-need-based aid. Exceptionally talented student-athletes may also be offered athletic scholarships; for more information, contact the athletic department.

The Office of Financial Aid offers information on all sources of financial assistance at the University, as well as links to other sources of aid outside the University. You might also try the financial aid estimation form, which demonstrates some of the ways in which schools might calculate students' financial need.
