WVU Tech has rich history of training capable scientists, engineers, business leaders and health care professionals.
With more than 120 years of experience, we’re continuing that tradition in our new home in Beckley, West Virginia.
Why we need your support
We now serve more than 1,600 students – our largest student population in almost a decade – and we’re still growing. That growth means we’ll need your help.
We’re updating and creating new laboratories for our science and engineering students to tackle the needs of the nation’s industry and infrastructure. We’re launching new programs that will train students in modern business and entrepreneurship. We’re entering into partnerships and updating our resources for teaching nurses, psychologists and health care administrators how to heal our communities.
We believe these efforts will help carry the region out of uncertainty and into a future where people know their worth and aren’t afraid to take on new economic and social challenges.
We’re a public institution and part of the WVU System and its land-grant mission to help the people of the Mountain State. Even so, state budget cuts to higher education have left us with less and less funding to rely on each year. That makes financial gifts from our supporters even more important and impactful.
How you can help
These are the areas where WVU Tech can use your financial help. No matter what you give, we know that your support will go a long way toward helping our students and toward helping us realize our vision for WVU Tech as a beacon of educational and economic prosperity in Southern West Virginia.
- Greatest Needs
The President’s Office Fund addresses WVU Tech’s areas of greatest need. When we need to update lab equipment, renovate student spaces, fund campus initiatives or fill in scholarship gaps, this is where we turn.
- General Scholarship Fund
The General Scholarship Fund helps us fill in financial gaps for students who show great academic promise and financial need. It allows these bright students a chance to focus more on learning new skills and less on paying for them.
- Tech Golden Bear Alumni Association Scholarship Fund
The Tech Golden Bear Alumni Association Scholarship Fund serves West Virginia students who are related to WVU Tech alumni. It’s a powerful gift for students of the Mountain State and a measure of ensuring that these students have a chance to exercise their talents and shape their communities.
