Support Inclusion and Diversity Initiatives

Through the years, we have witnessed the power of communities coming together and shaping the University through their activism and engagement. Today, Virginia Tech's alumni community continues to strengthen the Virginia Tech experience to ensure that diversity remains a central focus at the University. Through the ongoing efforts of the InclusiveVT Initiative, students and faculty have begun to capitalize on and secure the gains made on our campus in the past while enhancing the Virginia Tech educational experience.

The main components of this multi-dimensional initiative are perpetual support through gifts to the InclusiveVT Student Excellence Fund and endowed scholarships.


InclusiveVT Student Excellence Fund

Scholarships can do more than just lower the barriers to access. They can raise the caliber of education we provide, by allowing for additional opportunities for Virginia Tech students.

The InclusiveVT Student Excellence Fund will be used to help recruit historically underrepresented students (including freshman and transfer students) by providing additional financial resources to support their educational goals.

Please show your commitment to inclusion and diversity by making a gift to the InclusiveVT Student Excellence Fund today. To make an online contribution, click “Give Now,” then select “InclusiveVT Student Excellence Fund” from the drop down menu.


Endowed Scholarships

The Office for Inclusion and Diversity also encourages you to consider endowing a new fund, which bears your name or the name of someone who impacted your life. The perpetual support provided by endowed scholarship funds is critical to helping Virginia Tech meet its financial aid budget. With the Office for Inclusion and Diversity’s growing commitment to reducing the loan burden upon our students, your gift to help establish an endowed scholarship fund with a preference for an underrepresented student with financial need will help us meet the challenge of providing our students with the competitive financial aid that they need to attend Virginia Tech.
