UVA Student Featured in Forbes Magazine

Posted: Updated:

A University of Virginia student is being recognized for his mission to save money through merit-based scholarships. Fourth-year student Joe Riley is featured in this week's Forbes Magazine.    

The article is titled "12 Insider Tricks to Pay for College." Riley avoided the high price tag for tuition at an Ivy League school and took an all-expense scholarship at UVA.

"I didn't qualify for need-based and I still didn't want to ask my parents to foot the bill for what can be a very expensive undergraduate tuition fee.  So it was very important for me.  I think in some degree each person should put themselves through on their own," said Riley.

Riley joined the ROTC. He plans to attend Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar for the next three years, and then serve as an officer in the army.
