The UVA Alumni Association’s Student Engagement Fund seeks to facilitate positive student engagement by providing funding to a wide variety of student organizations.  We are committed to supporting events and initiatives that reach a diverse audience and positively impact the University.  The Fund is sponsored entirely by the UVA Alumni Association, and is managed by our Student Engagement department and the President’s Office.

Since its inception, the Student Engagement Fund has supported an array of groups including the Class Councils & Trustees, Pancakes for Parkinson’s, Muslim Student Association, FLIP at UVA, Organization of African Students, and many more.  We also have assisted with larger University events such as providing the keepsake nickels at Opening Convocation, creating stand-in diplomas for graduation, and making Lighting of the Lawn possible.

If your organization is seeking funding for a program or event that will enhance the student experience and reach a breadth of audiences, we encourage you to apply!  Please read our Funding Criteria and Details and FAQs to learn more.
