Community College Scholarship Program

Scholarship Description

The Community College Scholarship Program is open to students currently enrolled in a program of study at one of the Virginia community colleges.  Students must be U.S. citizens and have completed at least the first semester of their degree program.  Awards are generally made to full-time students (12 semester hours), but part-time students (6-9 hours) demonstrating academic merit are also eligible for the award.  Students eligible for support can be enrolled in any community college program that includes coursework related to an understanding of or interest in technological fields supporting aerospace.  This can include associates degrees related to math and science and AAA and AAS students in advanced technology fields such as, but not limited to, engineering, computers, electronics and industrial technology.  Successful scholarship recipients shoudl have grade point averages of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.  Since an important purpose of this program is to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities, females, and the disabled in aerospace-related,  high technology careers, the VSGC especially encourages applications from these students.
