Children and Grandchildren of Employees: Apply by March 1 for Two U.Va. Scholarships

The children or grandchildren of full- and part-time faculty and staff who will be University of Virginia undergraduate students in the 2013-14 academic year are eligible to apply for the Leonard W. and Jerry S. Sandridge Scholarship and/or the Faculty and Staff Undergraduate Scholarship. The application deadline for both of these scholarships is March 1.

Demonstrated financial need is a requirement for the Sandridge Scholarship and a preference in determining eligibility for the Faculty and Staff Scholarship. The amount, number and type of scholarships awarded in 2013-14 will vary based on the performance of the University’s endowment, number of applications received and the applicants’ level of demonstrated financial need. 

In 2012-13, there was one new Faculty and Staff Scholarship awarded and one Sandridge Scholarship awarded.

The application form and additional eligibility requirements for each award are available here.

For information about either scholarship or about applying for financial aid, call 434-982-6000 or write to
