Virginia College Scholarship Assistance Program
The College Scholarship Assistance Program (CSAP) is a statewide need-based undergraduate grant program established in 1973 to assist students with extreme financial need in Virginia's public and participating private colleges and universities. The Commonwealth combines state appropriations with the Federal Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (LEAP) to fund the program.
To apply for assistance, the student must:
1. From a high school or post-secondary institution, obtain and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or other federally approved application for need-based aid;
2. Meet the FAFSA application deadline established by the participating institution which the student plans to attend;
3. Ensure that information provided on the application is complete and accurate. A student's failure to resolve any pending problems with the processing of an application may preclude the student from being considered for assistance in this program; and
4. If attending a private institution, file a Tuition Assistance Grant Program application or complete a domiciliary status form.
