Hello Seniors!

    If the University of Virginia(UVA) is one of your top two choices, then this is for you!

    The Jefferson Scholars Foundations awards scholarships annually to cover the cost of four years of tuition at UVA. Last year 32 scholarships were awarded out of a pool of 2,000 applicants. You can learn more about this program here.

    You can not apply directly for this scholarship. You can nominate yourself to the Rock Ridge Counseling Team. The Counseling Team will then recommend a candidate from Rock Ridge to the Jefferson Scholars Foundation.  

    Successful candidates have demonstrated uncommon academic abilities, exceptional leadership talents, and an understanding of the broader community around them. 

    To nominate yourself, please submit email your application below to Ms. Barnes (mary.barnes@lcps.org) no later than November 6, 2020.
