The evaluation criteria include academic success, community service, demonstration of technical skills within your trade, work ethic, teacher recommendation, and financial need.
Complete one application to be considered for the following scholarships:
- Leslie Hughes Walton ($1,500) — The award is based on grades, what the student intends to do with their education, and financial need.
- Albemarle County Rotary Club ($1,500) — Financial need, in order to continue the student’s education at a university, college, or technical school, is the one of the main criteria. There is also a heavy emphasis on community service.
- CATEC Foundation (4 for $1,000) — These scholarships are based on academic success, community service, demonstration of technical skills, work ethic, and financial need.
- Lance Van de Castle ($1,000) — This recipient must be a Building Trades student in high school or apprenticeship program who is pursuing post-secondary or additional training in that particular trade area. In Mr. Van de Castle’s memory, the student needs to have a “clear desire to do what is right and accept nothing but the best.”
