SCHOLARSHIPS

An Opportunity for Everyone!

 

Recognizing the incredible motivation students bring to their education, we offer a number of scholarships to provide our students with the support system they need to succeed. With these scholarships, we intend to address one of the largest challenges – financing a university degree. The ultimate goal of the CalUMS-VA scholarship program is to put a spotlight on education as a driving force for changing lives and creating new opportunities.

The Scholarship Committee is led and appointed by the Campus Director. The Campus Director makes the final decision. Each quarter the Scholarship Committee awards the qualified students at the Student Orientation.
The University offers a variety of scholarship opportunities. All scholarships are strictly tuition scholarships, which are awarded quarterly.
