G3 Scholarship



The G3 program makes it possible for Virginians with low or modest income to pursue jobs that are in high-demand fields. We understand that time and money can pose some challenges when exploring training for a new career.

The G3 scholarship makes it possible. The programs offered can fit your busy schedule and many programs can be completed in a short time period. G3 students can select from a list of approved programs in five high-need career areas: Healthcare, Information Technology, Manufacturing and Skilled Trades, Early Childhood Education, and Public Safety.
