James J. Pyne Scholarship
Funded by Virginia Tech, the James J. Pyne Scholarship is a one-time scholarship awarded to undergraduate students who exhibit academic achievement and demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Preference will be given to students who are first generation of their family to pursue a post-secondary education, previous recipients who continue to qualify in subsequent academic years and students from Giles, Bland, Pulaski, Tazewell, Buchanan and Craig counties, or other counties in Southwest Virginia. Special preference will be given to individuals seeking to continue their education at Virginia Tech as a transfer student after successfully completing 2 years of community college at an accredited Virginia community college. This scholarship may be reduced or cancelled if your demonstrated financial need changes, or if you do not complete the required thank you letter. Instructions on completing the thank you letter requirement will be emailed to awardees in the summer prior to the beginning of the next academic year. Changes in funding may cause VT to replace this award with another award for the same amount.
