Northrop Grumman has agreed to invest $750,000 in Virginia Tech’s scholarship and faculty fellowship programs.
The donation will go toward the university’s senior faculty fellowship in advanced intelligence systems and scholarship program in military leadership for the students of Corps of Cadets and College of Engineering, Virginia Tech said Thursday.
“We expect that this initiative will contribute to national security through a focus on C4ISR and unmanned systems,” said Wes Bush, chairman, CEO and president of Northrop.
Northrop will offer paid internships to the scholarship recipients.
The fellowship is also open to the Ted and Karyn Hume Center for National Security and Technology faculty members in the College of Engineering.
