The Rose Koury Scholarship was established to recognize outstanding Northern Virginia high school seniors who plan to enter the field of early childhood or elementary education. The scholarship will be awarded to students who demonstrate strength of character and dedication to improving the lives of others through a career in education. The scholarship will make a significant contribution to the education of a student who might otherwise have difficulty paying for college.
This scholarship will provide $5,000 per year for up to four years of undergraduate education for a total award of $20,000. Renewal depends on the student's academic good standing, continued full time enrollment at an accredited college or university and on the student's enrollment in a major course of study in early childhood or elementary education.
The scholarship is administered by the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia.
