Bicentennial Scholars

OVERVIEW

This is the moment to shape their future

In celebration of the University's 200th anniversary of its founding, we made a commitment to realize student potential by creating the Bicentennial Scholars Fund for scholarship support. The success of this program continues to increase opportunities for deserving students.

In December 2020, President Jim Ryan announced an additional investment of $30 million in strategic matching funds to support need- and merit-based student scholarships at the University. 

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.

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-based scholarships.

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