Calhoun discovery program

 

This program was made possible by an exceptional gift from David Calhoun ’79, senior managing director for Blackstone and former CEO of Nielsen.

 

We know that worrying about finances stifles imagination and innovation. We want any student, regardless of their household income, to participate. By bringing together committed donors, industry, and the university, the Calhoun Discovery Program will support students for all four years of their undergraduate education. Those accepted to the program will be given an annual scholarship of up to $14,000 (in-state) and $32,500 (out-of-state) to fully cover tuition costs. In addition, each student will receive an experiential learning grant of $10,000 to be used throughout the student’s four years in the program.

COLLABORATE

Full tuition scholarship

In this platform, we will combine solid disciplinary preparation with collaborative discovery studios that bring together students and faculty from many disciplines and industry partners. As the collaborative process broadens your exploratory horizon, you can select what you need to know from a rich selection of modular and adaptive coursework. Each student will bring with them a unique lived-experience, spanning across various ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, and collaborate with one another outside of their own fields of study.

You can also select which industry partner you’d like to work with, both on campus and in partner locations. These experiences will expose you to different types of innovative environments and prepare you for the real world. The Discovery Program faculty are academic and industry experts who will work with you on each component of your learning.

 

If so, the Calhoun Discovery Program is looking for multi-faceted explorers like you.

This program is an innovative platform of collaborative learning that brings different students together to imagine, experiment, and discover.

 

After four years learning the process of discovery, innovation, and problem-solving, you will be prepared to face the real world. Our goal? Technological Innovation for Societal Impact. Under this new learning platform, you will graduate from Virginia Tech with the skills and knowledge needed to lead collaborative technological innovation and live out our motto Ut Prosim, “That I May Serve.”
