DVR Grant Information

For individuals who have been determined eligible for services from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and have a Individualized Plan for Employment that includes support of post secondary education, you may be eligible for the DVR Training Grant which is funding towards certain cost of attendance items.

The amount of your training grant will depend on how much financial aid you get and your unmet need. The training grant amount is up to $4,500 per academic year for a full-time student.

For those receiving a DVR Training grant, you must apply for financial aid by April 15. Applying after that date may cause delays that could negatively affect your eligibility for a DVR training grant.

For more information, contact the DVR office that is located closest to the county you currently reside in.
