We want to help you REV up your career.


Through the Re-Employing Virginians (REV) campaign, Blue Ridge Community College and Virginia’s Community Colleges received $27 million to help current and future students cover the costs of tuition and fees in fields that will lead to careers in their community.

We can help thousands of Virginians. Are you one of them? These vouchers can make your tuition and fees nearly free!
