The Society will provide a limited number of scholarships each year. These scholarships will be for a one-year membership (January to December) in the Society. Scholarships will be given for either an individual or household membership. Individuals may request a scholarship by completing an application and a renewal or new member application and mailing to the VBGS Scholarship Fund. The confidential applications will be considered by a Committee appointed by the President. Criteria to be considered will include need and apparent interest in genealogy by the applicant. Any applicant can only receive two scholarships in a five-year period. The number of scholarships to be given in a year will be determined by the Board based on available funds.
A Scholarship Fund may be established by the Board to allow donations to a dedicated fund to support the Scholarships.
