Community Foundation awards $100,783 in scholarships to local high school graduates

FREDERICKSBURG, VA. (Aug. 7, 2013) Generous local donors have provided $100,783 in scholarships to 38 students who will be attending college this fall. All philanthropic funds that provide the annual scholarships are administered by The Community Foundation.

"The Community Foundation now has 33 scholarship funds and each has its own criteria. Our awards committees were very impressed by the credentials of the applicants," said Executive Director Teri McNally. The students live in the City of Fredericksburg and the Counties of Caroline, Culpeper, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford.

Some scholarships are merit based; others are need and merit based. Some focus on student athletes; others support a future field of study, like nursing or business. Some are available to seniors throughout the region; others are offered only to students in specific localities or schools.
