Robert Jones & Family Scholarship Fund
This fund awards two $500 scholarships each year to Virginia Tech undergraduate students who are pursuing a major in Political Science who demonstrate exemplary leadership skills in their campus and/or community.
International Peace Fund
We reflected in the department on how to appropriately honor the lives of our nine International Studies and Political Science students who were among the April 16 victims, while also considering your requests to be a part of an effort to remember and recognize them. In response, the department has created the International Peace Fund. This scholarship fund will be used to award merit scholarships to support the study abroad experiences of International Studies and Political Science majors.
Contributions to the International Peace Fund can be mailed directly to the Virginia Tech Foundation at 902 Prices Fork Road, Suite 4500, Blacksburg, VA 24061. If you have any questions, please feel free to call (540) 231-5836 or email email@example.com.
