#TJBDAY for Scholarships

Help U.Va. with the Griffin Challenge Grant

Mr. Jefferson dreamed of an educated citizenry coming from all walks of life. Support to need-based scholarships helps attract the most talented, hardworking students to the University regardless of their financial circumstances.

Alumnus John Griffin, a 1985 graduate of the McIntire School of Commerce, has generously provided a $4 million challenge grant to support scholarships and financial aid. Every dollar raised during #TJBDAY will be matched 1:1.
More on the Griffin challenge…

#TJBDAY for Scholarships features the first-ever student Digital Talent Show, which supports and highlights fundraising for need-based scholarships. One vote = one dollar, which will be matched by the Griffin challenge.

Can’t decide who to vote for? You can still support student scholarships.
