Virginia Tech takes a hands-on, engaging approach to education, preparing scholars to be leaders in their fields and communities. As Virginia's most comprehensive university and its leading research institution, Virginia Tech offers 240 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to more than 31,000 students and manages a research portfolio of more than $513 million. The university fulfills its land-grant mission of transforming knowledge to practice through technological leadership and by fueling economic growth and job creation locally, regionally, and across Virginia.
Through a combination of its three missions of learning, discovery, and engagement, Virginia Tech continually strives to accomplish the charge of its motto Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).
Membership in the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets offers excellent opportunities for supplemental scholarships. About 650 cadets receive $1.5 million in Emerging Leaders Scholarships. In addition, 429 cadets garnered $7.8 million in Army, Navy, and Air Force ROTC scholarships. The cadets, of course, have access to other scholarships and financial aid. But the Emerging Leaders and ROTC scholarships provide more than $9 million in total aid to members of the 857-student corps.
