Looking for financial aid? The first stop, of course, is Student Financial Services, which handles all of the institutional aid for the University.
But your second stop might very well be the U.Va. Alumni Association’s Scholarships webpage. It lists 22 different endowed scholarships, with awards ranging from $750 to full tuition, that the Alumni Association administers.
Often, there are interesting conditions: the Hess-Newman-Jargowsky-Stoker Scholarship – Class of 2001 offers $2,000 for students whose lives have been touched by cancer, while the Robert Adams Bradford Scholarship offers $10,000 for intellectuals from the College of Arts & Sciences who have leadership and citizenship skills and hail from from New England or Wisconsin. There are a couple intended for surviving family members of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Many of the awards are geared toward upper-class students.
Several have application deadlines in March and April, so now is the time to look things over. You can even apply online through the webpage.
