VGFOA & Radford University GNAC Certificate Program Scholarship

The VGFOA Certificate Program Course Scholarship encourages participation in the VGFOA & Radford University GNAC Certificate Program, especially among Members from smaller local governments or from areas of the state where VGFOA participation has been limited.

The Certificate Scholarship Program offers five individual course scholarships, each valued at up to $225.  VGFOA Membership is required to apply for the Certificate Program Scholarships.

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 employer.  Also considered is the locality’s geographic location within Virginia.  Applicants are encouraged to provide full and complete information since these scholarships are highly competitive.

Applications are due by August 1, 2022 to Andrea Light, Membership and Awards Committee Chair at  The application can be found here
