How We Can Help You
Looking to make college a reality? The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria is here to walk with you through each step of the process from middle school to college graduation.
We are a nonprofit organization providing free college, career, and financial aid advising to Alexandria City Public School families. Additionally, we raise money to provide financial need-based scholarships for Alexandria City High School graduates. Since 1986, we have awarded over $13 million in new and renewal scholarships.
Our college advisers are available to meet with students and families in our offices at the ACHS King Street campus all year round (including summer). We would be happy to assist you with anything from planning out a college preparatory schedule in middle school, to editing college essays, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and more. We also host evening programs throughout the school year and provide classroom presentations at the middle and high school levels. Our doors are open to all, but we specifically seek to serve first-generation to college and lower-income families.
We also offer scholarships that are just for Alexandria City High School students. A single application enables seniors to apply for more than 100 different scholarships, and each year, more than 50% of applicants actually win money from us. All financial need-based scholarships are at least $3,000 per year, renewable for all four years of college. In 2016, we awarded over $1 million in new and renewal scholarships to T.C. graduates. So if you only apply to one scholarship senior year, make sure it’s the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria!
The Scholarship Fund also oversees commemorative ‘donor-named’ scholarships established to honor individuals, businesses, or community organizations. Each donor-named scholarship is governed by a separate set of criteria determined by the Scholarship Fund and the donor.
