Welcome from the Parents Fund Committee Co-Chairs

The Parents Fund Committee is a diverse and engaging group. Our membership includes both alumni and non-alumni parents who hail from all over the globe, from Charlottesville to Hong Kong! We get together twice a year to connect with one another and to hear from University leaders about topics ranging from career services, to student safety, to what’s “hot now” in and around the school.

The Parents Fund focuses on sustaining UVA’s tradition of academic excellence. To support outstanding student performance and continued intellectual growth, the UVA Parents Fund offers two scholarships, both awarded each spring to a rising third-year student. Recipients are chosen based on demonstrated academic achievement, leadership, citizenship, and financial need.
