To fulfill its public mission, the University of Virginia ensures that undergraduate students with strong academic credentials find the University’s doors open to them, regardless of their financial circumstances. The U.Va. financial aid program allows students to graduate without crippling loads of debt.

Scholarships and financial aid meet 100 percent of undergraduate students’ demonstrated need through a combination of grants, loans, and work study, with caps on need-based loans.

This vital program—which allows all talented students offered admission to attend U.Va.—needs your help. Gifts are needed to:

  • Provide immediate support to qualifying undergraduates
  • Create named endowments that provide for full or partial scholarships
  • Provide need-based aid for study abroad, service learning, or other co-curricular opportunities
