Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) and Virginia Tech have created a scholarship opportunity for full-time NOVA Engineering students. The name of the scholarship program is Virginia Tech Network for Engineering Transfer Students (VT-NETS) and it is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The scholarship will provide each successful applicant with up to $6,000 a year over two years while working towards completion of the A.S. in Engineering degree at NOVA. After earning the degree with a GPA of 3.0 or higher, students would have the opportunity to continue full-time at Virginia Tech pursuing a B.S. degree in Engineering. While at Virginia Tech the scholarship would provide up to $10,000 a year over two years and fully fund a student’s study abroad experience as part of Virginia Tech’s Engineering program.
Please note, this scholarship program is intended for NOVA first-time freshman or early Engineering program majors (those who have not completed any program specific engineering, science or math courses).
Full details of the scholarship opportunity, application criteria and applications structure can be found here:http://eng.vt.edu/academics/vtnets/about.html
It is strongly recommend that you review the application criteria and structure before beginning the application. The application deadline is August 4, 2017.
