SOAR Virginia®

ENROLLMENT FOR THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR WILL OPEN OCTOBER, 2017

SOAR Virginia® is an Early Commitment Scholarship Program created and funded by Virginia529 College Savings Plan℠ to inspire and assist high school students to reach their post-secondary education goals. 

You may be eligible to be a part of the SOAR Virginia® program. SOAR Virginia is sponsored by Virginia529 and brought to you by GRASP.  If you are in a GRASP participating school, please complete the interest form and email it to info@grasp4va.org.

To participate, eligible students pledge to meet program requirements. In return, students receive a range of assistance and may accumulate scholarship support of up to $2,000 to apply toward their post-secondary education expenses. 

In the 2016-2017 school year, 884 students participated in GRASP's implementation of the SOAR Virginia program. In the past, 97% of those who enroll in the program have gone on to graduate from high school (this percentage excludes those who move or leave to be home-schooled). Over $2,000,000 in scholarships have been awarded to participants in GRASP schools since the 2010-2011 school year.
