Awards & Scholarships


Each spring, the VSEA Awards & Scholarships Committee solicits scholarship applications from VSEA members and their spouses, dependents, and domestic partners. The application process is easy, requiring the applicant to write a couple of short essays as well as provide a grade history, employment history, personal references, and a few other things. All applications received before the official deadline (date changes year to year) are then reviewed by all committee members who debate the eligible candidates and then vote to decide a particular year’s winners. Winners are usually announced at the VSEA Council’s May/June meeting in a given year.

The 2022 Scholarship deadline has passed. Winners will be announced in June 2022.

2023 VSEA Scholarship Deadline:

Completed applications and all accompanying data must be received at VSEA Headquarters no later than 4:30 p.m. on May 5, 2023.
