July 31, 2018 - Boeing announced today that it will contribute $3 million to Virginia Tech's Calhoun Honors Discovery Program.

The gift will impact students and faculty in the Discovery Program which is a pilot model of transdisciplinary collaborative learning with the Honors College that is scheduled to enroll its first students in the fall 2019 semester.

The funding will include financial support for student scholarships, experiential-learning grands and salary support for program faculty.

Boeing’s support establishes the Boeing Studio as part of the Calhoun Honors Discovery Program, which will allow students to engage in collaborative, transdisciplinary projects under the supervision of Discovery Program faculty and with Boeing experts available for advice.

“We are honored and excited to expand Virginia Tech’s partnership with Boeing in such a transformative way. As a global leader in using highly engineered systems to solve complex problems, Boeing is an ideal partner for this bold new program," said University President Tim Sands.
