Institute Scholars

High school students with a strong academic and well-balanced high school record may be eligible to become Institute Scholars.

Institute Scholars are awarded scholarship funds to supplement ROTC scholarships or other forms of financial aid in order to meet the full cost of attendance at VMI. Financial need is not a criterion for selection. In addition to the financial award, all Institute Scholars are automatically enrolled in Institute Honors

Requirements:

  • 1380 (combined) SAT (or) 31 ACT, High school GPA 3.7, Top 10% of high school class

Only incoming students may apply for this program. Applicants must apply both for admissions to VMI and or the Scholars program. Both applications must be received by admissions no later than Feb. 1. Outstanding candidates will be invited to make arrangements for an on-post interview conducted during an Open House weekend. Alternate dates for on-post interviews may be arranged in some circumstances.
