Welcome to Scholarship Central!

Current Students – The General Application is currently open for the 2024-25 academic year. Please complete the General Application first, then check for any additional scholarship applications you would like to complete.

Prospective Students – Students applying for admission to Virginia Tech who wish to apply for scholarships first need to complete the admissions application. After submitting your admissions application, you will should receive an email from the Office of Admissions with instructions on creating your admissions portal login credentials. After logging into your admissions portal, you may login to the system by clicking on the Scholarship Central link. Students who applied for admission in a previous academic year should create new account credentials using the Applicant ID Number listed in the email from the Office of Admissions. Using login credentials from a previous admission application will result in a “Login Failed” error.

All Students – You should complete the General Application before attempting to complete any other scholarship application in the Scholarship Central system. The priority deadline to complete the General Scholarship Application is January 22, 2024. If you have not done so already, please remember to complete the FAFSA by visiting: https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. You must complete both the General Application and the FAFSA for maximum scholarship consideration.

We anticipate the FAFSA opening in late December. 2023 All students should submit the FAFSA by January 22, 2024 for maximum scholarship consideration.
