The Bicentennial Scholars Fund makes a bold statement to the Commonwealth and the nation that UVA is committed to affordability, and that access and excellence need not be mutually exclusive. With an investment of up to $100 million over five years, the Bicentennial Scholars Program will match philanthropic commitments designated for new endowed need- and merit-based scholarships for undergraduate students. This investment will continue the University’s tradition of affordability and access for qualified students from all walks of life.
