ABU Offers New Scholarship Opportunities to WV Students!

Alderson Broaddus University is excited to announce new scholarship opportunities for West Virginia students! ABU is pleased to qualify for participation in the Neighborhood Investment Program sponsored by the West Virginia Development Office.

The Neighborhood Investment Program was established by the West Virginia Legislature in 1996 to increase charitable giving to local nonprofit organizations for the purpose of serving West Virginia residents from economically distressed regions of the state. This year marks ABU’s first time participating in the program and we are delighted to offer WV students this opportunity!

Here is how it works:

  • ABU is awarded tax credit vouchers in amounts pre-determined by the WVDO.
  • Donors who give to the newly established Alderson Broaddus University Equal Opportunity Scholarship will receive a tax credit voucher. Donors may use the tax credits to reduce state tax liability for:
    • Business Franchise Tax
    • Corporate Net Income Tax
    • Personal Income Tax
  • ALL donations made from businesses and individuals through this program will be used for needs based scholarships that will be awarded in order according to the following priorities:
    • First priority: To all eligible Philip Barbour High School students
    • Second priority: To all other eligible West Virginia high school students as funds are available
  • Tax credit vouchers are issued to donors on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Donations are still being received until March 15, 2017, and again from April 1-June 30, 2017.
