Virginia Association of Volunteer Rescue Squads Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 6
Award Deadline: Jun 15, 2024

There are five (5) scholarships that are associated with the VAVRS.  All scholarship applications can be found on the VAVRS web site.  http://www.vavrs.com/forms.htm

Tips:

  1. When filling out applications answer ALL questions.  If the question does not apply to you, put N/A.  To leave a question unanswered makes the judges wonder if you even read the question.
  2. Read carefully, there are differences in eligibility and due dates.
  3. Applications that arrive late will NOT be judged.
  4. If you did not win this year apply again next year.
  5. Scholarships are NOT just for the first year in college, so if you do not meet the qualifications for your first year, apply as soon as the qualifications have been met.
  6. If you have won the one of the scholarships and none of the others, apply for the others the next year.
