The Circle of Vision Scholarship Program provides a unique opportunity for West Virginia students to attend one of our eight private colleges and universities. Many of these scholars are the first in any generation of their family to attend a college or university. These students are motivated and successful. Circle of Vision donors contribute $10,000 or more each year designated to the program. Established in 1997, Circle of Vision Scholarships have been awarded to 3,183 students totaling $4,854,227. In 2017, Circle of Vision members provided $489,453 to our member institutions, assisting 66 students from West Virginia who demonstrated financial need and academic excellence.
