Next Deadline: Monday, December 3rd

First, we hope those of you on the East Coast stayed safe from Hurricane Sandy over the past two days! We unfortunately had to cancel our recruitment events at RPI, Williams, and Amherst, but plan to reschedule in the coming weeks. Keep your eye out for when VFA will return to your campuses.

With the end of October quickly approaching, our December 3rd Deadline will be here before you know it. The online VFA application can be found at, and requires a resume, transcript, and two recommendations. If you plan to submit your application for the 2nd deadline, we suggest you begin filling it out and reaching out to your recommenders soon!

If you have any questions about the program or application process, check out our Frequently Asked Questions page. If you still have questions, you can e-mail

We look forward to receiving your applications soon!
