New Horizons Program

The VFIC’s New Horizons program is a strategic initiative with two objectives:

  • to help the 16 member colleges and universities 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 Hispanic 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 Hispanic students and would like further information about this program, please contact Mary-Beth Johnson at


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.
