“Each year the VA Higher Ed Fund helps families in need. I received a scholarship and a dorm gift bag with a comforter, sheets, towels, and everything needed for my dorm room. Thank you VHEF, donors, and community. It truly means a lot!”
Sam, Hampton University

Emergency Student Aid

VHEF is deeply thankful for your support. Through our annual Momentum Scholarships and emergency student aid, students experiencing adversity are empowered to succeed in college.

You may be assisting a student who has been homeless or even a first-generation college student. You may be providing assistance to a student who lives in low-income housing, or a student who is experiencing other challenging life conditions. Whatever the challenge, your kindness has empowered a college student to move forward and complete their college education, thereby creating a new class of Virginia stakeholder.

We are deeply thankful for your support.
