Often when people hear the word “scholarship” they think about money dedicated to the four-year-college bound high school senior. In the four counties that Northern Piedmont Community Foundation serves (Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison and Rappahannock), we want all our residents to know that of the 43 scholarship funds we manage, many of them have universal appeal. 

This year, in Rappahannock County, we awarded 11 high school scholarships for a total of $16,000 to both college-bound and non-traditional students who plan to pursue trades and technical fields. 

New this year is the Polling Family Memorial Scholarship, which was set up to assist students pursuing a career in Fire Science. The Joe Timpane Building Trades Scholarship was established for students of any age and is available to students pursuing training in fields that relate to the building trades.

NPCF also provides scholarships to those attending Rapp Center For Education certification programs. The Community Foundation was thrilled to see that even during a pandemic with all the obstacles these young people have faced in their learning, they managed to stay focused and succeed. Last year’s scholarships in our four counties totaled $286,000 for first year scholarships as well as $150,000 in renewable funding.
