Endowed Scholarships

UVA Wise Bicentennial Scholarship Funds

In December 2016 The University of Virginia’s Board of Visitors established the Bicentennial Scholars Fund, to inspire donors, providing them with an opportunity to magnify the impact of their gifts.

UVA will make a 50% match on gifts of $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 and graduate students.
