Supporting current and future Golden Bears

We are honored to be able to pay tribute to William “Bill” Benn and we know that the student success fund named in his honor will help current and future students who might be in the same financial situation that Bill experienced as a student. Donations will help current and future Golden Bears complete a degree at Tech, making them Golden Bear alumni. Bill had to take a hiatus from his studies as a civil engineer at Tech due to financial concerns which forced him to enlist in the U.S. Marines. Bill tragically lost his life in Vietnam where he was killed in action on June 6, 1969.

Our Day of Giving Funds

The WVU Tech General Scholarship Fund was established to help promising students focus on making the grade without worrying about how they'll make the payment.
