The College of Humanities and Sciences offers over 100 scholarship opportunities to currently enrolled students annually. All information on scholarship opportunities in the College of Humanities and Sciences can be found on our online system.

The amount of each of our scholarships varies as determined by the VCU Foundation Policy. If you have questions about applying, see your adviser or department chair, or email Elaine Innis in the Dean’s office at

Recipients of scholarships through the College are asked to participate in stewardship activities that are coordinated by the VCU Foundation and/or the Office of the Dean. Such activities may include writing a letter of thanks to the donor(s) and attending special functions. Scholarship recipients may be featured in College or university communications.

Additional opportunities are available to incoming freshmen and transfer students through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, as well as through The Honors College.
