This highly competitive four-year scholarship is open to first-year students enrolling in a designated STEM major.

Centennial Scholars Program

The Centennial Scholars Program provides financial assistance and a multi-level academic support network, to retain eligible under-represented students. We believe that qualified and deserving Virginia students who are not able to finance the cost of attending college should have the opportunity to graduate from a higher-education institution. In addition, we feel a holistic support system is essential in order to provide assistance and help students grow throughout their undergraduate careers.
