Craig SirlesDr. Craig Sirles, BA ’75/H&S and founder of the Craig Sirles MA in English Scholarship, “My annual support to VCU is a ‘thank you’ for the wonderful education I received when I was a student here. My B.A. in English prepared me well not only for graduate school but also for my later career as a professor at DePaul University. Contributing money to scholarships at VCU makes an immediate impact on current students; moreover, these contributions are an investment in the education of future generations of students. More than ever, these students need our support, and our support really does make a difference to these students.Click here to learn more about your giving options.
