Next Fallen Heroes Scholarship Awards in 2014

VAAFA has decided to award its twelve $1000 scholarships on a bi-annual basis starting in 2012. Thus, the VAAFA Scholarship Board will review applications in the Spring of 2014. Awardees will be selected and granted the scholarship at the beginning of the school year in Fall 2014.

The scholarship selection criteria and process will not change, but will simply be every two years, instead of on an annual basis. The scholarships were previously awarded in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause. Switching to a two-year cycle allows us to make the best use of our precious volunteer time, preserve our financial resources, and ensure that we select those candidates who best exemplify the excellence, service, and leadership that VAAFA and our Fallen Heroes stand for.

Our next scholarship fundraising and Fallen Heroes tribute banquet will be in the fall of 2014 at a time and location to be determined.

In the meantime, please keep checking this website and our Facebook page for the very latest updates regarding the scholarship and the banquet.

Faithfully at your service,

VAAFA Executive Committee
