To be eligible, students must have higher education expenses and identify as Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino; American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander. High school seniors, graduates, those already enrolled in undergraduate programs, or those planning to enroll in a two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school located within Dominion’s service area are eligible. Students are also required to have a minimum grade point average of 3.0.
