DC Tuition Assistance Grant (DC TAG)

The DC TAG provides tuition subsidies to DC residents who attend a private college in the Washington, DC area.  Currently, grants are valued at $2,500 per year and must be applied to tuition expenses only. 

At GW, all DC residents are expected to apply for this program.  Awarding of any scholarships and/or grant-in-aid will assume that the first $2,500 will be covered by the DC TAG program.

Students who qualify for DC Tag may also automatically receive an additional award from the University subject to need-based eligibility criteria as outlined on the GW District Scholars Award  page.
