How would you like to receive up to $5,000 to pay for your tuition, books, fees and supplies? The Virginia Foundation for Community College Education is once again offering Valley Proteins Fellowships for the 2013 – 2014 academic year. In addition to funds for tuition and supplies, the program provides Fellows with opportunities to share in a variety of cultural and educational experiences and to meet with successful business and government leaders from across Virginia. Fellows also have the opportunity to apply for a $3,000 summer stipend. Fellows will be selected based on their academic records, leadership potential and commitment to community service.
To be eligible for the Fellowship, applicants must be full-time students who, at the beginning of the Fall 2013 semester, will be starting their second full year of college at John Tyler Community College or another Virginia Community College. They must have completed their first full year of college by the end of the Spring 2013 semester and have a minimum 3.5 GPA. Additional information about eligibility requirements and the application process may be found at http://www.vccs.edu/Foundation/Scholarships/ValleyProteinsFellowsProgram.aspx. A link to the application, which includes a checklist showing the supporting materials that must be submitted, may be found at http://www.vccs.edu/Foundation/Scholarships.aspx.
The deadline to apply for the Valley Proteins Fellowship is April 15, 2013.
