The Vexus Scholarship Program is available to persons completing their high school education who desire to further their education so that they can acquire the knowledge and skills to better prepare for the future. The intent of the program is to encourage individuals to demonstrate civic responsibility and scholastic achievement.

Amount and Disbursement of Scholarship

Up to seventeen (15) $3,000 scholarships will be awarded by the Vexus Scholarship Program Committee. The scholarship will be made available shortly after the first semester begins once the committee receives a Verification of Enrollment letter from the Student Financial Aid and/or Scholarship Office of the institution that the recipient will be attending. No money will be paid directly to the recipient. A check will be mailed to the institution’s Scholarship Office.
