Why we need your support

The Virginia Tech Athletic Fund (Hokie Club) was founded in 1949 with the sole premise of providing scholarships for the student-athletes at Virginia Tech. Currently, more than 550 student-athletes in 22 varsity sports receive financial aid each year. It is vital to the future of Virginia Tech Athletics that scholarships continue to be the most important resource we provide Hokie student-athletes.

 

The landscape of intercollegiate athletics has vastly changed over the past two decades, as has the financial investment required to achieve excellence in the classroom and win championships. As the cost of scholarships, continue to rise, so in addition, have expenses such as equipment, travel, nutrition, student-athlete development, and strength & conditioning.  We must grow and enhance our Hokie Club membership to continue our positive momentum.
