VFIC SCHOLARSHIPS

Bridgewater College students

The Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges' named scholarship program allows a corporation, foundation or individual to have one or more students at each of the VFIC's 15 member institutions selected as recipients of their scholarship. In addition to making an independent higher education possible for students who otherwise would not be able to attend, the program allows organizations to develop meaningful long-term relationships with students and "see" the positive effects of their philanthropic dollars.   To establish a new named scholarship or to ask a question about current scholarships, email Mary-Beth Johnson, VFIC Vice President.

For FY 2012, the VFIC awarded 600 students. These scholarships will provide students with opportunities to further their education at our member colleges and universities. Our hope is that, in the future, even greater numbers of students will benefit through partnerships with these and other supporters of Virginia's independent higher education. Scholarship programs are administered by the financial aid offices at the VFIC colleges and universities. See Financial Aid Offices for more information.
