Tobacco Region Scholarship Program
WELCOME
The Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission (Tobacco Commission) established a Bachelor's Degree scholarship program in 2002 to strengthen the economies of Southwest (SW) and Southside (SS) Virginia through education and training of its citizens. The 2016-2017 Tobacco Region Scholarship Program provides assistance with tuition for eligible students who live in one of the SW (Brown) localities or SS (Blue) localities and who are enrolled in a Bachelor's Degree program at an accredited 4-year college or university, whether public or private, in-state or out-of-state.  Residents of the counties shaded in yellow are not eligible to apply for assistance through the Tobacco Region Scholarship Program.
