Division of Student Affairs Opportunities

Interested in donating to support student success at Virginia Commonwealth University? There are a variety of different funds designed to provide students with the resources to thrive throughout their time at VCU. These funds include:

Invest in Me Campaign

Help make an accessible, enriching college education possible for all VCU students.

If you know anything about Virginia Commonwealth University, you know it’s different here. Like many public research universities, we strive to achieve distinction in education, research, service and patient care. We cultivate discovery, creativity and talent. We foster collaboration to advance learning, entrepreneurship and inquiry.

At VCU, however, we know that access is just as important as excellence. Our students need your help to make the most of their time here.

The Invest in Me campaign aims to raise funds to enhance the VCU experience, from scholarships that make it possible for students to join our campus community and stay the course through graduation to awards that offset living expenses while they focus on meaningful internships or assistantships to travel grants that help them attend academic and professional conferences or expand their horizons through study abroad.

VCU students are the doctors, job creators, engineers, social workers, dentists and artists — the changemakers — of tomorrow.

Invest in them. Your support today is an investment not just in their future but in all of our futures. To donate, please visit our support page.

Invest in student experiences

At VCU, we provide an educational experience unlike any other. Our students take a hands-on approach to learning, translating ideas into action to address real-world challenges while advancing their intellectual, professional and personal development.

The VCU Student Life and Learning Fund, part of the Invest in Me campaign, helps students afford opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom through enriching, career-focused civic engagement, travel, mentoring, internships, field research and more.

Your investment in these opportunities empowers our students to build on what they learn in the classroom by putting it into practice in the community. To donate, please visit our support page.
