New Horizons Program
The VFIC’s New Horizons program is a strategic initiative with two objectives:
- to help the 16 Member Colleges to further diversify their student bodies
- to expand college access and opportunity for students from lower-income minority families
Excelencia Campus Tour Grant Program
The VFIC’s Excelencia Campus Tour Grant Program helps connect and introduce Latinx high school students to VFIC colleges and universities. Through this program, the VFIC works with college-readiness programs throughout the Commonwealth to provide groups of students with a view of the college experience by touring a VFIC campus for a day.
If you are a representative of a college-readiness program working with Latinx students and would like further information about this program, please contact Kristina Preisner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Partnership for the Future Collaboration
The VFIC is honored to work with Partnership for the Future (PFF), a college readiness program focused on helping inner city Richmond minority students prepare for and get into college. Each year, the VFIC works to secure scholarship support for PFF graduates attending VFIC schools.
