Scholarship Sharing Program In Richmond

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va - Scholarship Sharing is a student run organization that helps put as much information about financial aid, scholarships and grant opportunities into one place for students. Our main goal is to help students finding and applying for scholarships, and motivating them to complete their applications. We know the hardest part of scholarships is finding the resources then getting organized.

Our focus this summer is to support our military student veterans and their families. We are collecting donated items for Military Back to School Support Kits to thank the many men and women at VCU for their service. Our goal is to create 800 kits before July 30. We are also collecting monetary donations towards the creation of a scholarship fund for military vets and their families.

A back to school kits consists of:

4 Spiral or Composition Notebooks
1 pack loose leaf paper
An 8 gb usb flashdrive
2 (10 count) packs of Pens & Pencils
1 package of computer printing paper
2 packs Sticky notes
200 Index Cards
5 count pack of Highlighters
1 Stapler & staples

Items can be purchased from our wishlist which ships items directly to us by clicking here.

Items can also be mailed to:

Military Student Services
Harris Hall Third Floor Room 3122
1015 Floyd Avenue
Po Box 842536
Richmond Virginia 23284-2536

Any check donations should be written to Scholarship Sharing at VCU along with a note specifying if the funds are for the kits or the military student scholarship fund. These can be mailed to Military Student Services as well.

Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.

Anyone from across the US who are civilians or military students can join our social media pages to find out about scholarship opportunities.
