Fun Facts from UMW Procurement Services…Did you know?    

PepsiCo contributes over $125,000 annually to UMW, provides gratis product, including water for commencement, and sponsors up to $4,000 in textbook scholarships to eligible academic departments each year for on-time textbook adoption (the math department received $2,000 for fall 2015 on-time adoptions).  Come say thanks!
