Hamlett Scholarship

Luther and Alice Hamlett's love of Virginia Tech inspires all

On April 14, the inaugural recipients of the Luther and Alice Hamlett Scholarships were recognized during the Academy of Integrated Science Awards Celebration. Luther Hamlett earned his bachelor's in biology from Virginia Tech in 1945 and then went on to earn his M.D. from the Medical College of Virginia. Dr. Hamlett died in July 2016. His legacy of generosity will be felt throughout our college forever, but most strongly in the academy, where dozens of students already have benefitted from scholarships he created. These scholarships are endowed, and will continue to support students for years to come. Dr. Hamlett and his wife, Alice, who passed away in 2008, are among the most generous supporters our college has ever had.
