The Fredericksburg Area Builders Association has a scholarship program for students from the area who are attending the University of Richmond. It is open to ANY student in the qualifying region so if you know a high school senior planning to attend UR in the fall, send them the information below!
The Steigleder Family Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to one or more academically outstanding students who qualify for admission, and plan to attend (or who are already attending) the University of Richmond as a full-time undergraduate student. The scholarship amounts awarded in the past few years have ranged between $3,000 – $6,500 per student each year (renewable annually with re-application, provided that the recipient continues to be enrolled as an undergraduate at the University of Richmond and maintains satisfactory academic citizenship).
The application deadline is April 15, 2020. Students who are awarded scholarships will be notified no later than April 25, 2020.
The Steigleder Family Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 by a past president of the Fredericksburg Area Builders Association. This scholarship is ONLY available to students from the Fredericksburg Area (Caroline County, City of Fredericksburg, King George County, Orange County, Spotsylvania County, and Stafford County) with preference given to residents of Caroline County, Virginia.
The University of Richmond will approve and confirm that all scholarship applicants meet the conditions of the scholarship criteria. Scholarship recipients must be enrolled full-time in a degree program at the University of Richmond. Additionally, recipients must be a resident of the Fredericksburg Area (Caroline County, City of Fredericksburg, King George County, Orange County, Spotsylvania County, Stafford County) with preference to a resident of Caroline County, VA. The scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s financial aid package at the time eligibility is confirmed. If the recipient is also receiving need-based financial aid, this scholarship will first be used to replace need-based loans and/or work study. Grant assistance will be reduced, if necessary, to keep the total of all aid within the student’s demonstrated financial need.
