expenses and financial aid
A student may receive only one CitizenLeader Scholarship of $5,000. Additional funding beyond that scholarship is possible through our academic scholarships and need-based programs, as determined by the FAFSA. VIRGINIA TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM Virginia residents attending the College for the first time must also complete a separate application for the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (TAG) program. TAG, based on residency, not need, is available to bona fide residents of Virginia who attend an eligible private college or university in the Commonwealth. Instructions on how to obtain the application are sent to each accepted Virginia freshman applicant with his financial aid award letter. Completed TAG applications must be returned to the Office of Financial Aid by July 31. Returning students who received a TAG award the year before do not need to reapply for the grant in subsequent years. ARMY ROTC SCHOLARSHIPS The Army ROTC program offers two-, three-, and four-year scholarships and other financial incentives to those individuals seeking leadership training and experience. Participants who successfully complete this course are commissioned 2nd Lieutenants in the United States Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard. These scholarships are merit based and not awarded on financial need or family income. Applicants accepting a scholarship must attend classes at Longwood University, a partnership school with the University of Richmond ROTC program. If awarded an ROTC scholarship, an applicant receives full tuition per year for each year of the scholarship. In addition, the scholarship awards an annual allotment of $1,200 for textbooks and supplies plus a tax-free monthly stipend in the amount of $300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors, and $500 for seniors.
