University of Virginia
The fundamental mission of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation is to identify, attract, and nurture individuals of extraordinary intellectual range and depth who possess the highest qualities of leadership, scholarship, and citizenship. We seek those with great promise, and give them sufficient financial support so they are free to develop their talents and to use them for the good of the University community.
Jefferson Scholars are passionate about the roles they play in their communities and the world. Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia is a place where producing leaders for a self-governing people has always been a primary goal. This goal of nurturing future leaders is at the heart of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation’s mission: to attract to the University the most promising leaders, scholars, and citizens in the world and to give them sufficient financial support so that they are free to develop their talents and to use them for the good of the University community.
