The Scholarship Committee is responsible for organizing and awarding scholarships to deserving youths. In order to encourage community involvement and teach appreciation for financial matters, the scholarship committee is involved in the entire process, from fundraising to the final decisions about who should receive the scholarship.
Every year the VAMS Executive Board selects a panel of students with promising philanthropic potential to pass the wealth along to other students. They plan a summer fundraiser to earn money to invest in the VAMS Fund which ultimately pays for the scholarships. In the fall they convene to create a unique scholarship application that will target a specific community group. Winter is the application period for the VAMS Scholarship and in the spring the committee reads the applications and selects the ultimate recipient for the award.
