The following scholarships are for students from or connected to specific regions of the United States.
A Note About Our Scholarship Process
Most of Darden’s merit-based scholarships do not require an additional application. If admitted, students will be evaluated for available scholarships, which are competitively awarded based on a variety of metrics and considerations. Some scholarships require a supplemental application.
In addition, third-party scholarships and fellowships are independently offered and awarded by the University of Virginia Darden School Foundation (and other third-party scholarship providers). Examples of these non-University awarded scholarships can be found below.
Typically, students will learn of any scholarship offer simultaneous with the offer of admission.
