In 2019, Rob (Engr ’81) and Cindy Greer established the Greer Family Scholarship to support students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science from rural and under privileged areas in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The scholarship honors the University for the educations it provided to three generations of Greer family members. The scholarship will benefit engineering students who might not otherwise qualify for need-based financial aid, who overcame life challenges and who intend to use their UVA education to better serve their communities.
This potential three-year $48,000 scholarship is open to all current first-year undergraduate students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science who are enrolled full time at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. Recipients must demonstrate integrity, leadership and a curiosity for the world around them, originate from a rural or underprivileged area in the Commonwealth of Virginia and have earned a minimum GPA of 2.0. Scholarships may be renewed subject to a renewal process. Interviews will be held for those selected as finalists. The award for the 2023–24 year will be $16,000.
