Bicentennial Scholars


This is the moment to shape their future

Magnify your support of outstanding students from all backgrounds when you invest in the Bicentennial Scholars Fund. UVA will double down on your generosity by matching your gift—for a scholarship or a fellowship.

When you contribute $1 million or more for need-based, undergraduate scholarships and fulfill the commitment within five years, the University will double your gift.

UVA will make a 50% match on gifts of $100,000 ($50,000 for UVA-Wise) that are fully paid within five years for new endowments to support need- and merit-based scholarships, including those for student-athletes.

Once fully funded, scholarships may be named as chosen by the donor.
