Cavalier Fund Eligibility

Eligibility & Funding

Who is eligible? 

All enrolled undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need are eligible to apply for Cavalier Fund grants.

Students are encouraged to check your most recent Financial Aid Award offer in SIS to determine eligibility. Students with demonstrated financial need may see awards such as Federal Pell grants, Direct Subsidized loans, or AccessUVA scholarships in their financial aid offer. If you are unsure or need assistance in determining whether or not you qualify, you may contact Student Financial Services at [email protected] or (434) 982-6000.

Currently, graduate and professional students are not eligible to receive grants through the Cavalier Fund. It is recommended that you contact your specific academic unit to inquire if similar funding assistance may be provided.

When is funding available?  

Funding is available during any academic term – Fall, January, Spring, or Summer – provided students are enrolled during the applicable term.
