Prospective and current CAMP students are encouraged to apply for other scholarship opportunities available to college students. As you begin (or continue) your studies, it's smart to look and apply for as many scholarships as you can. 

Keep in mind that many scholarships, in addition to good grades, they require school and community involvement, as well as the submission of a scholarship essay to apply.

Remember, scholarships are FREE money so apply to as many scholarships as you can!

DACA/Undocumented Students

CAMP is a federally-funded program and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) does not qualify for Financial Aid and are therefore not eligible for CAMP.

However, VSU CAMP staff are allies to DACA/undocumented students and are available to provide a safe space, guidance, and support. 

While undocumented students in the state of Georgia may apply/enroll in colleges and universities that are part of the university system of Georgia (with the exception of the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Georgia College and State University), DACA/undocumented students pay out-of-state tuition rates. 

Check out the resources below for additional financial assistance.
