Colleges in VA that offer great financial aid to lower income families?

She will likely start out at the community college, but are there schools in Virginia that would be more affordable for her? She would really like to go away for a couple of years rather than commute the whole time.

UVA meets need.
Washington and Lee, URichmond, Patrick Henry are all VA colleges that use the CSS profile. I am not sure if they meet full need or not.

W&L meets 100% of need and is VERY generous with support for research, summer internships, etc.
Often the private schools are more generous than the public ones. What about some of the smaller private schools? Roanoke, Marymount, Bridgewater, and Mary Baldwin may all be worth a look, and there are heaps of others.
