Box 8795, William & Mary, Williamsburg, VA 23187-8795.

Students who wish to claim Virginia residency for tuition purposes must also complete an Application to Determine Physical Residency/In-State Tuition. That form should be included along with the application form. These instructions apply to ALL students who wish to be considered for in-state tuition privileges no matter what their status at their home institution may be.

Students wishing to apply for the limited scholarships should complete the Financial Aid Application form and return it to the NIAHD Director with their parents' U.S. federal tax return for that year. Students who file a U.S. federal tax return as an independent adult should complete this Financial Aid Application form and submit a copy of their U.S. federal tax return. Students may contact the Director for additional information.
