BGAV Scholarship Grants Available
There are funds available for students from cooperating churches of the Baptist General Association of Virginia who need aid in financing their education at Fork Union Military Academy for the upcoming academic year. The awards are open for application now and range up to $1,000 per student per year. These funds are grants from Virginia Baptists and do not have to be repaid. The BGAV uses the following criteria to evaluate each applicant: financial need, Christian service, community service, character, and demonstrated leadership.
Applications on behalf of Fork Union Military Academy cadets have been well-received in the past, and we hope that a number of our cadet families will apply for 2013-2014. The online application process for Academy Scholarships is available at http://www.vbmb.org/Services/Scholarship/Academy.cfm.
If you need assistance or information, please contact Alicia Parker at the BGAV at 1-800-255-2428, ext. 6225. Scholarship opportunities are also available for Virginia Baptist cadets who are graduating from Fork Union Military Academy and will be attending college next year. Please check deadlines and criteria for all Virginia Baptist scholarships online at http://www.vbmb.org/Services/Scholarship/default.cfm.

The deadline for BGAV Achievement Scholarships for BGAV Academies (for students attending Fork Union) is October 1, 2013. The deadline for BGAV Achievement Scholarships or BGAV Ministerial Educations (for college-bound students) is April 1, 2014.
