Fralin Futures STEM-H Scholarships: Supporting a Pathway to Success

In 2019, Virginia Western Community College will launch a new scholarship program for students in STEM-H (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health care) programs of study. The Fralin Futures scholarships will:

  • Focus on the "finish line," funding the recipient's last two semesters before graduating
  • Launch in fall 2019
  • Recognize academic excellence in STEM-H programs of study (3.0 GPA or higher)
  • Offer cohort activities and mentorships affiliated with the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute

The scholarship will support:

  • The total cost of tuition for up to 2 semesters
  • An additional monetary stipend equal to the cost of tuition each semester
  • A cash incentive upon graduation
  • A second cash incentive 6 months post-graduation, after reporting employment status

Applications open online March 1, 2019.
(Check back here for the online application and instructions, including how to identify and provide the required faculty recommendations.)

Deadline to apply: May 1, 2019

Recipients will be notified by June 1, 2019
