Dear Future Hokie:

This letter is reaching you at a very exciting time in your life! We believe the education received at Virginia Tech is second to none; therefore, we want to encourage you to attend Virginia’s great state university. While tuition at Virginia Tech is as affordable as there is in the state, we know the financial aspect of your education can be a burden. Because of this, we offer a scholarship to one or more local students headed up to Virginia Tech to offset some of that cost. I can assure you that every little bit helps!

Now as the president of the Central Virginia Alumni Chapter, I would like to inform you of this scholarship and encourage you to apply. Our chapter will award an area high school senior(s) or junior college transfer(s) who will attend Virginia Tech in the fall of 2020. 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the application and submit it to the scholarship committee.  Your application must be submitted no later than May 15, 2020. 

The criteria for selecting the scholarship award winner(s) will include academic achievement, as well as participation in school activities and community support. We plan to narrow the candidates and meet with them individually to determine our final award winner(s).   

Should you have questions, please feel free to contact me at, or Cindy Burnette, our scholarship chair, at Thank you for your interest in Virginia Tech. I hope to welcome you as a member of Virginia Tech’s Class of 2024!

Lindsay Bade
