Universal Leaf Tobacco Company Scholarship

Funded by Virginia Tech, the Universal Leaf Tobacco Company Scholarship is a one-time scholarship awarded to students who are children of active tobacco growers from the Southside area of the Commonwealth of Virginia who exhibit demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA and academic merit. This scholarship may be reduced or canceled if the awardee’s demonstrated financial need changes, or if the awardee does not complete the required thank you letter. Instructions on completing the thank you letter requirement will be emailed to the awardee 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.
