Virginia Press Women and the Virginia Press Women Foundation are pleased to offer a $550 scholarship to a deserving Virginia college student interested in pursuing a career in communications.

Applications are due Friday, May 24, 2013. The scholarship money will be available for the fall 2012 semester. Applicants must complete this scholarship form as well as submit:
  • Three (3) samples of work
