Greer Family Scholarship

In 2018, Rob (Engr ’81) and Cindy Greer established the Greer Family Scholarship to support students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science from rural areas in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The scholarship will honor the University educations offered to five Greer family members over three generations. The scholarship will benefit engineering students that 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 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 area in the Commonwealth of Virginia and have earned a minimum GPA of 2.0. Scholarships may be renewed for up to three years, subject to an annual renewal process. Interviews will be held March 27, 2020 for those selected as finalists. The award for the 2020–21 year will be $15,000.
