The Harmon E. Broyles Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Virginia-Carolina’s Scholarships Foundation Trust has established a leadership based scholarship program to assist students who live in Virginia, North Carolina, or South Carolina and plan to enroll as a full-time undergraduate student in the Virginia Tech College of Engineering for the entire upcoming academic year.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the The Harmon E. Broyles Scholarship Program must:

  • Live in Virginia, North Carolina, or South Carolina
  • Be high school seniors or graduates or current college undergraduates
  • Plan to enroll in fulltime undergraduate study at Virginia Tech for the entire upcoming academic year
  • Be pursuing a degree offered by the Virginia Tech College of Engineering
  • Have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent)
  • Hold a leadership role in a recognized/identifiable group or team.

Trustees, selection committee members and their immediate family members are ineligible to apply.


Up to two (2)* full-ride awards** will be granted.

*The award amounts and number of awards will be based on the annual funds available.
**Awards are intended to cover the entire Cost of Attendance (COA): tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, and board. Award amounts will be determined based on the cost of attendance as determined by each recipient’s financial aid award letter. If recipients have changes to their enrollment or living situation mid-year, their award amount may be adjusted if funds are available.


All applicants will be notified in July.
