What makes our college scholarships
What is the Scholarship Process?
There are no deadlines. Scholarship requests are processed year-round. We need an invoice from your school and some other documents so we can create your customized budget. You will need to complete a simple online form (so we have all of your pertinent information).
What expenses are covered for the college scholarship?
Our goal is to bridge the gap in funding between available sources of grants and scholarships (i.e., VA Chapter 33 or 35, federal, state, local and private grants) and the total cost of college. Costs related to undergraduate education: tuition, room and board, books, fees, miscellaneous and transportation expenses. New freshmen students also receive a computer package (laptop, printer, laptop bag). Students can be enrolled in either public or private institutions, colleges, universities and vocational-technical schools.
How are the funds provided?
Once the scholarship award has been approved, the student’s educational institution will paid directly. Students will receive payment (either check or EFT) for transportation and miscellaneous expenses (and housing, if applicable).
