Classes with students who receive free or reduced lunch may request individual admission scholarships. Scholarships will be available as funds allow.  Teachers will need to submit a written request stating how many students are in need of scholarships.

Class Scholarships for Virginia Schools
Supported by the Charles Angel Fund

Teachers or administrators in Virginia schools may apply for a full class scholarship, including transportation costs, by completing this online application and submitting a transportation cost quote for their visit.
