It is truly an exciting time to be a part of the Hokie Nation! In May 2016, the Virginia Tech Athletic Fund announced the Hokie Scholarship Fund program. This program was designed to bring us back to our roots of providing the young men and women who represent Virginia Tech Athletics ample opportunity to be successful first and foremost in the classroom, but also in competition and the community. It is an extension of the Virginia Tech Athletics Pylons of Promise that is based on the ideals emblazoned on the eight pylons at the Virginia Tech War Memorial Court and our athletics department’s guiding principles of INTEGRITY, SERVICE, HONOR, EXCELLENCE, and STRONG TOGETHER.
With these guiding principles in mind, the Hokie Club implemented the Hokie Scholarship Fund in March 2017. For the 2016 –17 academic year, the scholarship bill exceeded $14 million, the highest mark in school history. Thanks to the generosity of over 10,000 Hokie Scholarship Fund donors who specifically gave over $16.2 million to be utilized for scholarships for Virginia Tech student-athletes, a dramatic increase from the previous year’s total of $9.8 million. We are Strong Together in support of Hokie student-athletes!
While the number one fundraising priority for the Hokie Club is to cover the scholarship costs for all Virginia Tech student-athletes receiving scholarship aid, there are other exciting avenues where you can make a difference with your support. These include endowed scholarships, capital gifts to facilities, and planned gifts. No matter what your preference, there is a way you can make an IMPACT on the lives of Hokie student-athletes!
We need your help now more than ever to COMMIT to Hokie student-athletes and help GROW Virginia Tech Athletics to an even more elite program now and into the future.
THANK YOU for ALL of your support and generosity in helping Hokie student-athletes REACH FOR EXCELLENCE!
