HUB Scholarship Mentoring

What is HUB?

Hub is an outreach service for students receiving certain scholarships at Virginia Tech. Each HUB student is receiving an annually renewable scholarship, but they must meet certain requirements to continue renewing the scholarship every year. Each Scholarship has different requirements, so it is important to know what is expected of you. The HUB Scholarship Mentoring program is here to help!

This is not a program that you apply to join. Students are automatically assigned to the HUB Scholarship Mentoring program if they are receiving certain scholarships from the Office of University Scholarships and Financial Aid. We will reach out to you by email if you qualify. This program is a collaboration between the Office of University Scholarships and Financial Aid and Academic Advising Initiatives at Virginia Tech. 

What are the benefits of HUB?

  • Opportunities to meet with HUB Mentors! HUB’s student mentors are current Virginia Tech students who are here to help you understand your scholarship requirements and serve as a resource to support your academics. They are not your academic advisor, but they are here to support your success.
  • Access to the HUB Canvas site, which includes information about scholarship requirements, frequently asked questions, and helpful resources for academic, personal, and professional development.
  • Reminders about important dates and deadlines that keep you on track with your scholarship requirements. We will send emails, texts, and post announcements on our Canvas site to help you stay informed and ahead of your deadlines.
  • Invitations to participate in exclusive HUB events. We will let you know when we are offering workshops to enhance your academic and professional growth and fun events to help you celebrate your achievements!

How do I contact a HUB Mentor?

Students are not assigned to a specific mentor. Meaning any HUB mentor can assist you! You can email any of our HUB Mentors directly. Their email addresses are available on the Meet the HUB Mentors page. Please include HUB in the subject line of your email to help our student mentors keep track of your message.
