The Virginia Tech Foundation in Blacksburg administers the Houston Chapter scholarship fund. The Virginia Tech Admissions Office distributes application information for the chapter scholarship to all Houston area students along with their offers of admission. The main criteria for the scholarship are academic excellence, leadership, and strong extra-curricular activities. The Scholarship Committee is comprised of six local Virginia Tech alumni members: Mike Strickler (Chairman), Fred Gibson, Bart Hatfield, Sneed Adams, Mike Hoffmann, and Wendi Sudhakar. Each member is responsible for thoroughly reviewing all of the application materials, providing feedback and a ranking of each applicant, and selecting a recipient by statistical ranking and a final vote. The committee members are all working or retired professionals with experience in recruiting in their respective fields. If you know of any Houston area students that may be considering Virginia Tech, please make them aware of our Houston VTAA Chapter scholarship.
