VIRGINIA (WDVM) — A new program will go into effect in Virginia soon called Get skilled, Get a job, Give back or G3 for short. It aims to give lower and middle-income Virginians more access to higher education in five in-demand career areas.

Eligible students must be enrolled in a high-demand program such as healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, skilled trades, early childhood education, and public safety.
