Scholarships

The Virginia High School League (VHSL), in partnership with its corporate sponsors, is proud to offer scholarships for college bound seniors. Through these scholarships, the VHSL is committed to supporting and investing in Virginia's youth. We encourage parents and students to take advantage of these scholarship opportunities.

Allstate Foundation/VHSL Achievement Award

Nineteen $1,500 scholarships are awarded each year honoring nineteen high school seniors representing all parts of the state with the VHSL-Allstate Achievement Award, the highest honor given by the VHSL to students who have excelled in the classroom and in athletic and academic activities. To find out more about the VHSL-Allstate Achievement Award, see the application form on the right.

Savedge Scholarship Award

Each year the VHSL awards $500 to one college-bound senior who has participated and excelled in school publications (magazine, newsmagazine, newspaper and yearbook), and for at least two years has demonstrated outstanding personal qualities such as leadership, writing, proficiency, design aptitude, creativity, teamwork and character.  To find out more about the Savedge Scholarship Award, see the application form on the right.

Vito Perriello Citizenship Award

Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded during the school year, honoring one male and one female student-participant who demonstrates outstanding traits of citizenship in his/her high school career.  Only students graduating from a VHSL member school will be eligible for these awards. Each VHSL member school may nominate one male and one female student (a separate application is required for each individual). Students must have previously participated in one or more VHSL activities which can include serving as an athletic training student aide (ATSA) with a Virginia licensed athletic trainer within that school to be eligible for the award.  All applications must be submitted to the VHSL office by the member school principal.  Applications must be postmarked by April 15.  No late applications will be accepted.   A statewide committee representing educators and Sports Medicine Advisory Committee representatives will review all nominations and select the winners.
