  • Scholarship Description
    The primary purpose of the Virginia Teaching Scholarship Loan Program (VTSLP) is to provide financial support to students who are interested in pursuing a teaching career in one of the top five critical shortage teaching areas. Candidates must: be enrolled full-time or part-time in an approved undergraduate or graduate teacher education program, or are participants in another approved teacher education program; and have maintained a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.7 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent.

    Eligible candidates must be nominated by the institution. Nominees must submit a complete application for a Virginia Teaching Scholarship Loan directly to the regionally accredited public or private four-year Virginia college or university with a state-approved teacher education program. Those students selected for the scholarship loan will be notified by the Virginia Department of Education. The students will be required to submit a signed, notarized Promissory Note to the Virginia Department of Education. Through the VTSLP, eligible students may receive a scholarship loan for as much as $10,000 per academic year for full-time students and will be prorated for part-time students based on the number of credit hours.
