National Capital Area Chapter

Our Goal:

Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $5,000 by September 30th!

Each chapter of the WVU Alumni Association strives continually to support students at West Virginia University. Through fundraisers such as Advance WVU, chapters are able to provide more scholarship dollars to students in their geographic area.

About Us:

Established in 1988 by the NCAC, this scholarship is named in honor of John and Lucy Nicholas, two devoted and lifelong supporters of West Virginia University, who selflessly gave their time, talent, and treasure to promoting WVU in the Washington, DC area. The scholarship is awarded to students living in the Washington metro area.

Choose a giving level



Donate $10 to provide solid standing for future students in the same way the Mountaineer's moccasins support his feet during long, tumultuous game days.


Coonskin hat

Donate $25 which will equip students with all the knowledge contained in the Mountaineer coonskin hat.



Your $50 donation will ignite a fire in future students the same way the Mountaineer musket ignites a crowd during a sporting event.



Your $100 donation will cloak future students in a Mountaineer buckskin so they can always show their WVU pride.


The Mountaineer

Your $150 donation will help ensure another 150 years of Mountaineer heritage and passion.
