Tidewater Alumni Chapter Scholarships

Junior Sophia Phillips calls her chapter scholarship a blessing.

“Coming from a single parent household, any and every scholarship helps to make college possible,” she said. “Without scholarships, I don't think I'd be where I am today or feel as set up for graduate school as I do now.”

Each year chapters around the world rally together to raise money for student scholarships to help Hokies in their neighborhood. The scholarships make a difference for Hokies like Phillips.

Tidewater alumni helped 4 students last year by raising $6,500.

You can support a new Hokie from our area by making a gift to our chapter’s crowdfunding campaign. Chapters all over are challenging local alumni to contribute.

Together Tidewater Hokies are trying to raise $2,000. Will you help?

Gifts of any size matter and it's a chance to help Hokies in your community. Those that donate through this page will be thanked with a special Virginia Tech Alumni sticker so you can let the community know that you care about supporting the Hokie experience! 

Phillips said her undergraduate research helped her discover a passion for helping athletes recover from concussions and traumatic brain injuries.

“Virginia Tech has made a tremendous impact on my life,” she said. “The Hokie community really is unlike any other because of its emphasis on academic support, service, and spirit.”
