Deadline to apply for the West Virginia Higher Education Grant. The West Virginia Higher Education Grant is a need-based financial aid program designed to ensure West Virginia students with financial need are given an opportunity to pursue post-secondary education. The grant may be renewed until the student’s course of study is completed but may not exceed an additional three academic years beyond the initial award. Awards are based on demonstrated financial need and generally may be used in conjunction with other forms of state, federal and institutional financial aid.
Deadline to apply for the WV Invests Grant, a state-funded grant program that pays toward the full cost of basic tuition, mandatory fees, and academic fees for select certificate and associate degree programs at West Virginia public two- or four-year higher education institutions. Priority is given to programs in high-demand fields, such as information technology or healthcare, as determined by the West Virginia Department of Commerce. This is a last-dollar-in program, meaning it will pay for any amount up to the total cost of tuition, mandatory fees and approved academic program fees not already covered by other state or federal grants or scholarships and institutional tuition waivers.
