Brighter Futures Scholarship Donors

Bridgewater College students

The Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges' Brighter Futures Scholarship Program allows a corporation, foundation or individual to have one or more students at the VFIC's 15 member institutions selected as recipients of their scholarship. To establish a new named scholarship or to ask a question about current scholarships, you may contact the VFIC through our Contact page.

In FY 2017, the VFIC awarded 919 scholarships. These scholarships will provide students with opportunities to further their education at our member colleges and universities. Our hope is that, in the future, even greater numbers of students will benefit through partnerships with these and other supporters of Virginia's independent higher education.
