VCU Resources

VCU provides a wealth of resources that are available for current students. 

NSO Kaltura Channel

Our Kaltura Channel hosts recordings of past information sessions, panels, and workshops. 

VCU Student Financial Management Center 

The NSO does NOT provide funding to attend VCU. For any questions regarding merit- or financial-based VCU aid, contact the Student Financial Management Center. Additionally, you can apply for VCU scholarships through the RAMS Scholarship Hub and VCU Business Services Scholarships.

VCU Writing Center 

Students who apply for scholarships through the National Scholarship Office have found great value in working with the VCU Writing Center. The Writing Center is a peer-based learning support service for students, which aids them in becoming stronger writers. They offer undergraduate and graduate workshops, English language resources, online consultations, and in-person meetings. The Writing Center can offer fresh eyes to your personal statement, short answer responses, grant proposal, or any other piece of your written materials package for a scholarship, fellowship, or grant application.

VCU Career Services 

Students and recent alumni can utilize VCU Career Services with career advising, mock interviews, resume/cover letter review, professional headshots, and personal statement reviews.

VCU Libraries

VCU Libraries offers students a breadth of resources such as journals, books, digital media, articles, and more. Regardless of the scholarship, fellowship, or grant opportunity you are pursuing, it is important to be as informed as possible about the topic at hand. Whether your written materials discuss a global issue, a country, a language, an industry, etc., you should use the resources that VCU Libraries provides as advantageously as possible. VCU Libraries put together a National Scholarship Support Guide to help you prepare applications for competitive national and international scholarships and fellowships. Nia Rodgers (, Public Affairs Research Librarian, is the NSO's primary liaison.


Pivot is a funding database platform provided by VCU Libraries. You must use your VCUeID to access Pivot.

The Education Abroad Office provides extensive scholarship listings for students planning a study abroad experience.
