The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia is accepting applications for college scholarships for the 2022 - 2023 school year. Eligible students include high school seniors and undergraduates in Northern Virginia. Community Foundation manages 13 scholarships and administers the funds for 21 other scholarships that support Northern Virginia students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees.
