On the weekend of May 19-20, the first cohort of Blue Ridge Scholars will walked the Lawn at Final Exercises. They’re in the final stretch of a student experience that some never believed possible. Since the Blue Ridge Scholars program began in 2014, 234 UVA students have received a Blue Ridge Scholarship. “Receiving this scholarship has allowed me to set and reach educational goals which I didn’t know existed before my time at UVA,” said Michelle Cox (Col ’18). “It has helped me realize that I can make a difference and that my work matters.” In spring 2018, the Board of Visitors allocated an additional $5 million to provide 50 more Blue Ridge Scholarships for the class entering fall 2018.
Bringing the best students to Grounds. The Blue Ridge Scholarship fund was established in 2014 to benefit students with exceptional promise and significant financial need. UVA will double your generosity by matching your gift for a scholarship.
Today's students, from all backgrounds, are tomorrow's leaders. With your support, our promising students gain a greater understanding of the world and live purposefully.
