The Southside Virginia Chapter of Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) will make available Roper Memorial Scholarships for selected high school seniors.  These scholarships have been awarded annually since 1997 to applicants from high schools in the Fort Lee and surrounding Southside Virginia areas.

Eligible high school seniors are encouraged to apply by contacting their principal or guidance department for an application.  Normally, around ten scholarships are awarded each year.  The scholarship provides $1,000 to offset the cost of tuition at any qualified academic institution of higher education within the U.S.  The scholarships are competitively awarded to selected seniors graduating in spring or summer of 2012.  

One additional scholarship is available only for a JROTC senior, involved in the Reserve Officer Training Corps at the high school level.

These local scholarships are available in additional to National MOAA scholarships that qualified students can earn each year.

Applications must be mailed and postmarked by March 4, 2012.  No extensions are allowed.  For other information or specific questions, contact Eugene Manner at 768-9360 or at macvsog40@aol.com.
