Pamplin Scholars Program

Pamplin Leaders are eligible to apply for the Pamplin Scholar following completion of their first semester at Virginia Tech. The scholarship covers tuition and fees for a recipient’s second, third, and fourth years, during traditional semesters (fall and spring only. Winter and summer semesters are excluded). Please do not apply if you were not a Pamplin Leader for the 2022-2023 academic year, as you will not meet the requirement for consideration.
