The UVA Club of Charlottesville is a community club, regardless of your affiliation with the University of Virginia. We host a series of educational, networking, athletic, charitable and social events where you will meet many people in the greater Charlottesville/Albemarle area who have an appreciation for UVA and its critically important role in the community in which it thrives.
“An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.” – Thomas Jefferson
Mr. Jefferson believed education was the most effective way to establish an organized, informed, and capable society. Moreover, he felt that institutions of learning should be financially supported by the general public; scholarship could be obtained by people from varied social and economic backgrounds.
In this same vein, the UVA Club of Charlottesville established a scholarship in 2019 to provide financial assistance to an incoming student from the greater Charlottesville area. Our annual recipient comprises the Jeffersonian qualities of citizenship, leadership, and integrity, and demonstrates a financial need.
Our scholarship is currently funded by donations and the proceeds from two dedicated fundraisers each year. Our leadership and participants remain committed to growing our annual scholarship through programming and the generous support of alumni, parents, and friends of UVA. Will you help us in this endeavor?
The annual scholarship of $500 will be awarded to one student. To inquire about the application, please contact Molly Bass (CLAS ’88, ED ‘90), Director, Scholarships & Endowments, UVA Fund, at email@example.com, or 434-243-9019.
Thank you for your support of our local students!
