VA Ready

Become a VA Ready Scholar and Receive a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award

Through Virginia community college training programs, FastForward has helped Virginians earn thousands of credentials in high-demand career fields that offer family-sustaining wages. The most affordable option in higher education today, FastForward programs can be finished in a few weeks or months with an average out-of-pocket cost of about $1,000. Financial assistance may be available to those who qualify.

A new partnership is looking to make some of those programs even more affordable for those who have lost their jobs in the COVID-19 pandemic. The Virginia Ready Initiative (VA Ready) brings together nearly two dozen of Virginia’s top businesses to offer incentives to FastForward graduates in select fields, including priority interviewing, mentorship with experts in the field, and a financial incentive for earning a credential.

Beginning August 1, 2020, anyone who is currently unemployed and eligible to enroll in one of 25 FastForward programs is qualified to become a VA Ready Scholar and receive a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award.
