U.Va. Athletics Pledges $50,000 from Bowl Proceeds to Marching Band and Graduate Student Research

U.VA.’S DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS will uphold its tradition of academic support by giving $50,000 from its share of the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl football game proceeds. For the second consecutive year, the money will be split into two $25,000 gifts — one to U.Va.’s Marching Band endowment, and one to the U.Va. Faculty Senate to support a graduate student fellowship recognizing excellence in teaching and research. The gifts will be announced by director of athletics Craig K. Littlepage (left) at tonight’s men’s basketball game against the University of Miami in U-Hall. Full story.
