TOBACCO REGION SCHOLARSHIP/LOAN FORGIVENESS PROGRAMS

2019-2020 Academic Year Information

At this time, we are not accepting applications for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year (Fall 2019 and Spring 2020). We recently received the following announcement from the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission.  The announcement applies to both previous recipients and potential applicants for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year:

“The Tobacco Region Loan Forgiveness Program is being updated to a loan repayment/talent attraction grant program.  This new program will stretch the Commission's reduced resources farther and continue to focus on ensuring our region has the most talented workforce possible.  New program rules and applications will be developed once funding is approved by the Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission in June 2019. Please visit the Commission's website at https://www.revitalizeva.org/grant-loan-program/grant-programs/education-grant-program/ for future announcements about the new program.  In the meantime, the Commission encourages students to find alternate lenders.”
