Virginia PTA is proud to offer $1,000 scholarships to graduating Virginia high school students with an active PTA/PTSA in good standing. The scholarship is awarded not solely on the basis of academic achievement or financial need but rather on a demonstrated commitment to, and engagement in, community service. The number of scholarships awarded each year depends on proceeds of special Virginia PTA awards. Donations in honor, or in memory of, special individuals are always welcome, as well as contributions to the scholarship fund.
