  • The West Virginia Higher Education Grant Program distributes monetary awards to qualified undergraduate students who require financial assistance to attend an approved educational institution located in West Virginia or Pennsylvania. Grants may be renewed until the course of study is completed, but may not exceed an additional three years beyond the initial award. Awards may be used to pay other educational expenses for certain recipients who are also awarded the PROMISE Scholarship.

    The Higher Education Grant has residency, financial and academic requirements. You are eligible if you meet the following:
    * Are a United States citizen
    * Have been a West Virginia resident for one year immediately preceding the date of application
    * Demonstrate financial need
    * Possess academic promise
    * Both high school and college students will need a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA to be considered for the Grant
    * Enroll as a full-time undergraduate student at an approved educational institution in West Virginia or Pennsylvania
    * Provide our office with either the ACT or SAT
    * Submit your high school transcripts or GED scores to the Higher Education Grant Program
    * GED applicants will need to obtain the minimum passing score to be eligible for the Grant

    HOW DO YOU APPLY?
    You will need to complete the Application for State Level Financial Aid Programs, which is available at http://www.wvapply.com/2, by March 1st. Paper applications are also available; please talk to your high school counselor to obtain one. (You only need to fill out the application one time once you’ve been awarded. However, if you were not awarded, you may re-apply for the Grant each year).

    You will also need to submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in order to be eligible for the Higher Education Grant. The FAFSA needs to be received by the Federal Processor no later than March 1st. Make sure you don’t wait until the last minute to complete the FAFSA, or it may not be processed before the March 1 deadline; which will jeopardize your Grant eligibility. The FAFSA can be done electronically through http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/3 or you can request the paper version
