There is an important and exciting opportunity now available for students from the ages of 16 – 25 whose parent’s work related injury event has caused a significant decline in family income and circumstances. Kids’ Chance of Virginia, Inc. was founded in 2011 with the goal of awarding academic scholarships to deserving children who have been adversely impacted by the work-related injury of a parent. Kids’ Chance of Virginia is currently accepting applications for scholarships for the 2013 – 2014 academic year, and they anticipate awarding several scholarships.
The first Kids’ Chance organization was founded in Georgia in 1998. While Virginia’s chapter is the newest, we are pleased that we have already had clients who were able to obtain scholarship help for their college bound children.
Additional information about Kids’ Chance of Virginia, Inc., as well as scholarship applications can be found at www.kidschanceva.org. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2013.
