VFCCE-Walmart Workforce Certification Exam Scholarship

If you are required to sit for an industry certification test as part of your Reynolds program, you may be eligible for a reimbursement if you pass it. Through a partnership with Walmart and the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education (VFCCE) we will reimburse students with a passing grade up to $200 on a first-come, first-served basis, upon meeting all application and reporting requirements. You must show proof of a passing grade for consideration. Students are not eligible for more than one award. Apply for the VFCCE-Walmart Workforce Certification Exam Scholarship.

Top Tips for Scholarship Applicants 

Tip 1: If you have not completed your federal financial aid form (FAFSA), be sure to do so. Demonstrating financial need is an important factor for scholarship eligibility. Even with financial aid, you might still benefit from a scholarship award. For more information on financial aid, visit Financial Aid Central.

Tip 2: Don’t rush through your essay questions in the application. Give these some thought and do a spelling and grammar check before submitting. Describing your goals and your need for financial assistance helps the Scholarship Committee learn about you and your unique circumstances. Tell us what sets you apart.

Tip 3: Actually submit your application. Working on your application and not submitting it is like leaving an important purchase in your shopping cart. Set aside some quiet time to work on, complete, and submit your application – in one setting, if possible. Many students complete their applications in less than an hour.

Tip 4: Just like with FAFSA, you must reapply for scholarship consideration each academic year. You will not receive an automatic renewal of scholarship funds from one year to the next. Student with Scholarship Donors
