Types of Financial Aid

  • To help make our education as affordable as possible, Southern Virginia University awards more than $5 million annually in need- and merit-based scholarships, including:

    • Academic Scholarships
    • Performance Scholarships
    • Missionary Service Scholarships
    • Seminary Scholarships

  • Similar to scholarships, grants are a form of financial aid that do not need to be repaid—like a gift. Students who demonstrate financial need can qualify for Federal Pell Grants worth up to $6,345 annually. Virginia Residents can also apply for the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG) which provides up to $5,125 of funding per year.

  • Responsibly and informedly borrowing student loans can be an effective way to finance your education. For instance, federally subsidized loans can be an especially helpful option since they do not accrue interest while you are enrolled in college full-time. To learn more about the student loans available to you, contact Student Financial Services.
