Lisa Sechrist Memorial Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 1

The Lisa Sechrist Memorial Foundation (the "Foundation") has been established to provide financial support to underprivileged women to finance their higher education. It is anticipated that distributions will be made through other exempt organizations to women who reside in the Commonwealth of Virginia, largely based on need and other characteristics such as merit, integrity and academic potential. It will be the Foundation's policy to make its distributions without regard to race, religion, color or age or any other protected classifications in accordance with applicable law.

Lisa Sechrist, in whose memory the Foundation is established, tragically lost her life when domestic violence escalated to her death. The Foundation's goals are patterned after the factors that Lisa's family feels contributed to this unfortunate conclusion of a promising young life. Should Lisa have been equipped with or had access to either of the following, her death may have been prevented: A complete college education to provide self-esteem as well as the skills essential to provide a stable and financially sound environment for her family, for a profession, and an affordable, safe place to live (away from her abuser).

The Foundation's scholarship fund will award college tuition, moneys and school-related expenses to qualified candidates based upon need, integrity, merit, and academic potential. The award will be given in the form of a gift, not expected to be repaid, in an amount to be determined after fundraising efforts are farther along. It is anticipated that during this year , the Foundation will provide one (1) scholarship up to $10,000 to one (1) qualified candidate to be paid over a four year time period or shorter, if attending another acceptable program. This scholarship opportunity will be publicized throughout the Fairfax County School System and Prince William County School System by way of Guidance Counselors and public notices.
