The Virginia Foundation for Community College Education has announced a new funding and leadership opportunity for second-year students for 2022-2023 called the Virginia Banking Fellows Program.
At least one Fellow from the College or its service area will be selected, so please nominate or recommend any deserving students. This opportunity is open to second-year students of all ages, genders, backgrounds and ethnicities who are enrolled in a Virginia community college with 30 credit hours completed by May 2022. Other criteria include academic excellence (cumulative GPA of 3.0), demonstrated leadership potential and integrity, as well as a commitment to community service.
