The Como Farm Scholarship Fund
The Como Farm Scholarship is a four-year award, which “follows” the winner through their college career, on the condition of adequate annual progress.
This scholarship fund was established in May 2010 by anonymous donors and named for their family home place in recognition of “four generations of love” for their community.
The family wishes to support the college or university education of one or more high school seniors from the City of Fredericksburg or the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania, Stafford or Westmoreland. In particular, the donors intend for their gift to support the further education of high school students who are prepared and committed to making significant contributions back to their community. Priority will be given to students for whom financial need or other circumstances create barriers to further education. Youth living in foster homes are encouraged to apply.
The four-year award cycle will begin again in 2022-2023.
Eligible Localities: Caroline County, City of Fredericksburg, King George County, Spotsylvania County, Stafford County, Westmoreland County
Eligible High Schools: Brooke Point High School, Chancellor High School, Colonial Forge High School, Courtland High School, Fredericksburg Academy, Fredericksburg Christian School, James Monroe High School, King George High School, Massaponax High School, Mountain View High School, North Stafford High School, Riverbend High School, Spotsylvania High School, Stafford Senior High School, Washington and Lee High School
Award Amount: $2000 or more
