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.

Madison House is proud to have the UVA Parents Fund as a partner in our efforts. This support makes a real difference every day. Thank you!
