Athletics

Supporting the Student-Athlete & Competing at the Highest Level

While the breadth of fundraising responsibilities for the Hokie Club has expanded since 1949, the principle mission to provide scholarships and a first-class experience for Virginia Tech student-athletes remains the same.

With this support, we're able to welcome top-tier student-athletes to our campus and ensure that they achieve excellence both in the classroom and in competition. Contributions from Hokies near or far, and at any level, are a vital part of moving Virginia Tech Athletics towards an elite level. We're strong together and the strength of Hokie Nation can help ensure the long-term success of our athletic programs.

Hokie Scholarship Fund

The Hokie Scholarship Fund program is designed to address the need for increased funding for annual scholarship support of Hokie student-athletes. All gifts given through this program will go directly to scholarship support. A reminder, that the only way to participate in the priority seating, parking, and ranking program for football, basketball, and baseball is by making a gift to the Hokie Scholarship Fund. While gifts to other funds count towards your cumulative giving, only gifts to the Hokie Scholarship Fund provide you with a ranking and membership level.
