The VGFOA Membership and Awards Committee considers a number of factors
when recommending Scholarship award candidates, such as the applicant’s
professional experience, short-term and long-term career goals, current
position within the employer’s organization, previous VGFOA Certificate
Program courses completed, and the population and budget of the
applicant’s locality. Also
considered is the locality’s geographic location within Virginia.
Applicants are encouraged to
provide full and complete information since competition for these
scholarships is usually intense.
