Jefferson Scholars Foundation (University of Virginia)

The Jefferson Scholars Foundation at the University of Virginia is now accepting nominations for the Jefferson Scholars Class of 2021.

Jefferson Scholarships provide full tuition, fees, and a living stipend for four years of undergraduate study at U.Va., plus a number of generous enrichment benefits including a study abroad experience.  I encourage you to learn more about the scholarship, the selection criteria, and the multi-stage selection process by visiting the Foundation’s website and reviewing our nomination brochure.

As a reminder, to be eligible to compete for a Jefferson Scholarship, nominees must apply to U.Va.  In order to be considered admissible to the University, the nominee must have either a valid SAT or ACT score prior to applying.

To begin a nomination, please visit our nomination portal.  You may log in by using your email as your username.

If you have any questions, or if the Foundation can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us at or (434) 243-9029.  We look forward to receiving a nomination from Christ’s College and thank you in advance for your participation.
