The University's Board of Trustees approved policies and procedures to aide with the implementation of Act No. 8155, the Virgin Islands Higher Education Scholarship Program, which requires that financial aid be granted to residents of the Virgin Islands for post-secondary education at UVI. 

Students eligible to receive the Virgin Islands Higher Education Scholarship (Free Tuition Scholarship) will be required to complete and submit Master Agreement form below to the email address financialaidstt@uvi.edu.



UVI Institutional Scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students are awarded by The University of the Virgin Islands Scholarship Committee. All UVI students (freshmen, current, transfer, graduate and international students) will be considered for UVI Institutional Scholarships based on their application, academic transcripts, completion of the electronic application and other documents as required.

The number of institutional scholarships offered by UVI vary in amount and duration depending on availability of funds allocated by contributing donors/agencies.
