University of Virginia

When Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia in 1819, he didn't just break the traditional mold of higher education. He built a machine of perpetual ingenuity, a center for critical thought designed not just to create a better kind of university, but better leaders and a more educated society.

The Pursuit of Better Begins Here

UVA was founded on ideals and drive by ideas, maintained for 200 years by generations of students, faculty, and alumni aligned in common pursuit of the common good. In a setting of extraordinary beauty and tradition - a campus known simply as the Grounds - students gather to exchange ideas, dream boldly, and commit themselves to a better society and a better world.

We are looking for talented students to study in one of our seven undergraduate colleges (Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Architecture, Nursing, Education, Business, and Public Policy). We have a commitment to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need for all US students.
