Generous alumni, parents, and friends can help open the doors to all that UVA has to offer for every student. The Cavalier Fund is a new endowment dedicated to ensuring that all students can have a full and fulfilling undergraduate experience, regardless of their means. Students can apply for Cavalier Fund grants of up to $500 per academic year that can be used for items such as travel to a lecture, expenses related to Madison House service opportunities, or membership in registered student organizations. To support the Cavalier Fund’s growth, the University will match any endowed gift commitment of $100,000 or more, paid within five years, with $.50 on the $1 until the $10 million gift-matching funding is depleted. We hope to grow the Cavalier Fund to at least $30 million, providing a permanent, endowed source of funding for grants.
