Academic Scholarship Applications Deadline Approaching

Dear Club Presidents and Members,

The submission deadline for the 2018 VFRW scholarship season is coming soon, March 2, 2018, with just a little less than a month to go. We write to you today to ask for your help in getting the word out about our scholarship program. Last year, we had a record number of applicants and we are hoping that we can set a new record this year! So we ask our District Reps, Club Presidents and Members to promote the VFRW scholarship program.

There are three Scholarship Programs to apply for:

The 4th Annual Kendall Rhodes Memorial Scholarship Application - 2018 Kendall Westbrook Rhodes January 1, 1945 - June 26, 2014

The Virginia Federation of Republican Women mourns the loss of one of its most dedicated and valued members, Past President Kendall Rhodes, who succumbed to cancer on June 26, 2014.

Mrs. Rhodes was VFRW President 2004 - 2006. One of her most significant contributions was the establishment of the VFRW Political Studies Scholarship for young Virginia college/university women studying government, political science or law. Its purpose was to reflect on the cause of good government and to promote political activism.

Mrs. Rhodes taught at the Court Street Academy in Portsmouth, retiring after 32 years. She served as Faculty Coordinator, co-sponsored the yearbook, and tutored students privately for most of those years. It is not surprising that she was a member of "Who's Who Among American Teachers," nominated by several former students.

It is in this spirit that the VFRW dedicates this scholarship to Kendall Rhodes for graduating high school female seniors who will follow in her footsteps in the field of education.
