Jefferson Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $293,000
Awards Available: 36

Developing leaders for a self-governing people is at the heart of what we do. Since 1980, the Jefferson Scholarship Program has been cultivating outstanding undergraduate students, providing them with the financial support to pursue their passions and develop their talents for the good of the University and beyond.

The mission of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation is to benefit the University of Virginia by identifying, attracting, and nur­turing individuals of extraordinary intellectual range and depth who possess the highest concomitant qualities of leadership, scholar­ship, and citizenship.

Students who wish to be considered for a Jefferson Scholarship nomination but do not attend a nominating school must apply using the Early Action admission process to the University of Virginia. Due to the volume of students in the Admissions At-Large competition, only those students receiving a nomination will be notified of their status.

Total value of the Jefferson Scholarship exceeds:

$293,000 for non-Virginian students
$157,000 for Virginian students

The stipend in 2021–2022 will exceed:

$71,000 for non-Virginian students
$36,000 for Virginian students
