Valley Proteins Fellows 2013-2014

Meet the 10 students selected as Valley Proteins Fellows this year!

The core mission of Virginia Community Colleges' most prestigious scholarship program, the Valley Proteins Fellows Program, is to help promising, second-year students pursue their academic goals and strengthen their leadership skills. In addition to receiving full tuition, book expenses and fees, the Fellows participate in a unique curriculum of intellectual and cultural activities. They also volunteer 80 hours of community service to hone their leadership abilities and develop a strong foundation for future success.

Virginia Foundation for Community College Education (VFCCE) has selected 10 outstanding students to be part of the third class of Valley Proteins Fellows.

Smith. “These young people are tomorrow’s leaders and we are confident that the returns for our investment in them will be substantial.”

“This isn’t an easy scholarship to earn,” said Glenn DuBois, chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges. “Those who are selected are talented, motivated and dedicated to succeed. They’re the kind of students who give you confidence in the future of our commonwealth and country.”
