Here at VHA, we recognize that achieving a post-secondary education can be a financial challenge for students and their families. That’s why VHA is proud to offer the Head Start Scholarship Program. Launched in 2012, $30,000 in scholarships has been awarded annually to students who are active in their communities and who have also achieved academic success.
VHA is encouraging children of VHA staff and service providers to apply for one of twenty (20) scholarship awards valued at $1,500 each. Applications for 2017 are being accepted from June 15 to July 31, 2017. Scholarship recipients will be notified by August 15, 2017.
VHA is a community-based organization that is proud to recognize excellence, community participation and support all forms of learning.
