Whites from Southwest Virginia eligible for money from Tech

In this article ("Money to help prepare students for doctoral studies," 1/1/04) about Virginia Tech's receipt of some $2.7 million from the federal government to help people pursue graduate studies in the biomedical sciences, Tech officials emphasized that persons eligible to receive the funds are not limited to racial minorities: "For example, white residents from Southwest Virginia who are first-generation college students could easily fall under the program's umbrella, said Larry Moore, one of VT-PREP's co-directors."
