About G3

G3 is Designed to Change Lives

G3 tuition assistance is for students living in Virginia who qualify for state financial aid with a household income that’s less than $100,000. G3 is available for select programs in five of Virginia’s most in-demand industries, including Early Childhood Education, Healthcare, Information Technology, Public Safety and Skilled Trades (construction and manufacturing).

The typical cost of tuition for a full-time student at Virginia’s Community Colleges is $4,650 per year. G3 is a last-dollar scholarship that, with other financial aid, could bring that cost down to $0. For full-time students who receive the maximum Pell Grant, additional scholarship benefits are designed to help off-set your cost of living so you can continue to take care of your family while going back to school.

How to Enroll in G3

  1. Select your career path.
  2. Apply to community college.
  3. Fill out the FAFSA or FANTIC application.
  4. Contact an advisor to plan classes and confirm financial aid.
  5. Enroll in your first classes.

Once a student qualifies, G3 has academic performance requirements to stay eligible. So long as you stay on track to finish in three years, you can take a break in between classes and remain on scholarship.

Take the step, we’ll lead you forward.

From healthcare certifications and early childhood education to IT certificate programs and criminal justice training and other public safety options, G3 assistance can help those who qualify pay for school. You can train for the right career, right where you are, right now. Starting something new or changing a career path can be scary, but if you want to earn workplace certifications or an academic degree that leads to a career, G3 can make it happen.
