Volpe Scholars Program

The Volpe Scholars Program for undergraduate students recognizes the value of experiential learning as a building block for leadership, particularly through internships, study abroad, research opportunities and unique programs at colleges or universities.

The Volpe Scholars provides students with stipends that can be used year round, nationally or internationally. Awards are based on academic achievement, future goals and the nature of the internship, study abroad, research opportunity or unique program. 

In honor of Hood’s 10th president, Ronald J. Volpe, Ph.D., the Hood College Board of Trustees, in conjunction with the Hood College Board of Associates, established the Volpe Scholars Program.
