Your Future, Our Commitment: Funds for the Future

Virginia Tech knows the impact of tuition and fee increases can have on our students and families. We want to help you plan for your costs while you are at VT. With the Funds for the Future Grant, VT covers yearly tuition and fee increases for eligible students -- offering predictability as you plan for the future.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be a continuing undergraduate.
  • Must file the FAFSA by the March 1 priority deadline.
  • Must have a family Adjust Gross Income (AGI) of less than $100,000.
  • Must demonstrate financial need.
  • Must maintain full-time enrollment status (at least 12 credit hours per semester).

Additional Rules

  • The Funds for the Future Grant applies to tuition and comprehensive fees only.
  • Eligible students may receive the Funds for the Future Grant for three consecutive years of enrollment after their first year. Breaks in enrollment count toward this calculation (ex. Co-op or Study Abroad semesters).
Are you concerned about tuition increases? Virginia Tech's Funds for the Future Grant has you covered, and it's better than ever!  Like many things in life, tuition rates can change. With the help of Virginia Tech's Funds for the Future Grant, you may be protected from future tuition increases. This year families with an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of less than one hundred thousand dollars reported on the FAFSA, are eligible for protection. Example: If tuition were to increase four hundred dollars each year, and your qualify for Funds for the Future, you would be covered for four hundred dollars your sophomore year, eight hundred dollars your junior year, and one thousand two hundred dollars your senior year. Over four years the total value of the grant would be two thousand four hundred dollars. For more information visit:
