In 1999 LLI established a Student Scholarship Program at the Northern Virginia Community College-Annandale Campus to give much needed financial help to outstanding students. This is in appreciation and recognition of the support provided by the college to LLI, as well as an opportunity to support a most worthy cause. Generous donations from our members have made it possible to increase our total scholarship awards from $1,000 to $15,000 in 2017, and to increase the numbers of scholarships awarded from one to ten.
We offer two types of scholarships, both of which are intended to be used by the recipients to pay for tuition and books as they continue their studies. The Leadership Scholarships are given to outstanding student leaders in recognition of their contributions in fostering unity among a diverse multicultural student body and in providing volunteer community service. The winners must show clear performance as leaders as well as scholastic achievement. The Academic Scholarships are awarded to students demonstrating both academic merit and financial need. The names of past winners of the Knox Singleton Leadership scholarship are engraved on a plaque that hangs outside the Provostís conference room in the CG building on the Annandale campus.
This year LLI is again offering a Student Leadership Scholarship (known as the Knox Singleton Leadership Scholarship) of at least $2,000 with additional scholarships depending on available money. Also LLI is offering an Academic and Need scholarship of at least $2,000 with additional scholarships available depending on available money. Students must be registered at Annandale as their primary campus.
