Description

Community College Transfer Scholarship Program. Establishes the Community College Transfer Scholarship program, to be administered by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, for the purpose of providing higher education scholarships to Virginia domiciles who have successfully completed an acceptable associate degree program at a Virginia community college and have been admitted to an accredited nonprofit public or private institution of higher education in the Commonwealth. To be eligible to receive a scholarship under this program, students must be Virginia domiciles and must have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher while enrolled in an associate degree program at a Virginia community college. Students may receive scholarships for up to three academic years or 70 credit hours. The amount of scholarships awarded is based on the difference between the cost of tuition and educational and general fees paid by the recipient at a community college and the average cost of such tuition and fees at a public institution of higher education, as determined by the State Council for Higher Education for Virginia.
