The Virginia EL Supervisors’ Association is proud to be able to offer scholarships to English Learners who are planning to continue their studies at a college, university, community college, or work-force training program. 


The VESA Scholarship Application form is attached. You may duplicate the application as necessary. Please encourage your EL teachers and school counselors to assist students in gathering the required documents so that all applications will be complete at the time of mailing. Incomplete application packets will not be considered. 

The following criteria will be used for scholarship consideration:

  • Enrolled in an ESL program for at least one year in grades 6-12 in a Virginia public school. (Current ELs preferred)

  • Enrolled in 12th grade at the time of application

  • Financial need

  • We weigh decisions heavily based on the “story” the student shares in their essay

The deadline for 2024 Scholarships applications will be announced soon.
