$10 Million Investment in Scholarships for the McIntire School of Commerce
University of Virginia alumnus and Board of Visitors member John A. Griffin has given $5 million to endow a series of need-based scholarships for McIntire School of Commerce undergraduates and to support the school’s Next Century Building Fund.
This scholarship is being established by Tonya Russell, School of Medicine Class of 2006, and her father, Sidney Russell. The scholarship is named to honor Tonya’s two grandmothers who never had the opportunity as Black women from rural Virginia and North Carolina to pursue higher education or careers in medicine. The scholarship is in memory of these two women and will support underrepresented students at the SOM.
