April 9, 2012 – Are you interested in providing a Scholarship to help our students in your name? Perhaps instead you would like to honor someone else; a family member, or even an organization that you represent and provide support for a scholarship with that name? Associating your name with Virginia Tech and with our department and College helps us attract and retain quality students, and of course it also provides a tax deduction credit. Most importantly though, it helps students who would need support to attend Virginia Tech, and by donating to the department you can make the gift specific to targeted areas of interest. All scholarship donors, and the names of the scholarships, are listed on our Department and College’s promotional materials and website, and all donors as well as the recipients are recognized at the College’s Award’s Banquet each year — to which all donors are invited.
For those that are able, please consider making a donation of $1,000/year for a named scholarship. Named Scholarships can be renewed on a yearly basis if desired, or they can be supported as your funding permits in future years. Smaller donations are of course also welcome to support our students and go into the scholarship fund for departmental and College use.
To make a donation, please feel free to contact Mr. Bob Mollenhauer, Director of Development. Phone: (540) 231- 8859; Email: or you can contact Dr. Barry Goodell directly via email, or phone, (540) 231-8853. Specific questions about how the scholarships are applied can also be directed to Dr. Goodell. We thank you kindly for your support.
