GRASP Virginia Last Dollar Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $4,000
Awards Available: 87

Students who attend one of the 87 high schools served by GRASP, and who have met with their GRASP advisor, are eligible to apply. These scholarships help meet the cost of books, computers or other expenses not covered by a student's financial aid package. The generosity of our corporate and individual donors makes Last Dollar Scholarships possible, enabling students to attend the college or technical program to which they have been accepted.

At least one student from each high school with a GRASP advisor will be awarded a $500 scholarship. Additional scholarships may range from $250 to $4,000. GRASP Last Dollar Scholarships are not renewable and are dependent upon generous donor support.
