Betty Ross Scholarship

Academy for Lifetime Learning

Betty Ross Scholarships

 

Each year the Academy for Lifetime Learning (A.L.L.) provides scholarships to help graduating students on the Eastern Shore of Virginia continue their education at a community college or university.  In honor of the founder of The Academy for Lifetime Learning, who spent her career in nursing and who passed away in 2014, these scholarships have collectively been named the Betty Ross Academy for Lifetime Learning Scholarship.  All of the scholarships are to be used to defray college expenses.

This year the Academy is offering three $1500 scholarships.  In recognition of Betty Ross’s importance to our organization, one of them will be reserved for a student entering a two- or four-year nursing program.  The other two will be available to students beginning a program in any discipline at a two- or four-year college or university in the fall.  The application form for this year’s scholarships can be found here.
