Graduating Student

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

  • Focus on the “finish line,” funding the recipient’s last two semesters before graduating
  • 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 supports:

  • The total cost of tuition for the final 2 semesters prior to graduation
  • 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

Fralin Futures Scholarships are made possible by generous support from the Horace G. Fralin Charitable Trust. They are administered by the Virginia Western Community College Educational Foundation, a nonprofit organization that draws on public and private support to make college possible and open doors for career training.
