Finals Weekend for First Blue Ridge Scholars
Intro Media
Final Exercises 2018

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.
