Every year, the VPPPA offers four scholarships each worth $3,500 to support students who have demonstrated leadership and commitment to safety and health in their schools and communities. This is a membership benefit as only members and their family (child, grandchild, spouse) can apply for the VPPPA scholarships. Learn more about the scholarship program here!
“The VPPPA scholarships have helped so many students over the years,” Stacy Thursby, Chair of the Awards Committee and VPPPA Board member, said. “Typically, we hold a raffle at the annual Safety+ Symposium to raise money for our scholarships. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold Safety+ in person this past August. It’s more important than ever that we support the next generation of safety stars.”
VPPPA has a goal of raising $3,500 for the scholarship fund. All donations are tax-deductible.
