Financial Aid

Affording VMI

Virginia Military Institute considers its financial aid program an investment in its cadets' futures and works to provide assistance to students who without such aid would be unable to attend and provide aid to cadets with superior academic abilities. 

VMI offers merit and need-based scholarships, grants, loans, and other support based on your qualifications.
