Mary Nolen Blackwood Endowed Scholarship

Funded by Virginia Tech, the Mary Nolen Blackwood Scholarship is a one-time scholarship awarded to a rising junior undergraduate psychology major who demonstrates academic and personal achievement, dean’s list grades, campus involvement, strong character, and appreciation of psychology (rising juniors are students who will have completed between 60 and 90 total credit hours, including transfer, IB, and AP hours, by the end of the Spring semester). Changes in funding may cause VT to replace this award with another award for the same amount.
