The Institute considers its financial aid program an investment in its cadets' futures and works to provide assistance to applicants who without such aid would be unable to attend and provide aid to those with superior academic abilities. Additionally, prospective cadets may be eligible for ROTC or athletic scholarships. At VMI we make your education dollars go further.
