Student Scholarship Information

One of the most rewarding programs of the Clarke County Education Foundation is awarding annual scholarships for deserving students pursuing post-secondary education.  With the rising cost of college tuition, our organization values the importance of assisting families and students with this endeavor.

 Scholarships are awarded annually at the Senior Awards Night.  Applications are given out each Spring at the Senior Information Session.  For more information regarding the application process contact Ms. Bonnie Broy, broyb@clarke.k12.va.us
