University of Virginia Engineering Foundation


The University of Virginia Engineering Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, aids and promotes, by financial assistance and otherwise, all aspects of engineering and applied science education and research at the University of Virginia School of Engineering and Applied Science.

The foundation began as the brainchild of five alumni in 1948 "to assist the engineering faculty in maintaining a high type of student body and an up-to-date curriculum and to keep the school informed as to alumni endeavors and achievements." The foundation was established as an independent, tax-exempt organization in 1953, with a board of directors. Today, the foundation is proud to continue strengthening bonds with the School’s devoted and diverse group of supporters, including students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and corporate and community partners.
