Congratulations to the students who received scholarships from VCU Staff Senate last week! Four out of the five students awarded scholarships have majors in the College:

2.) Fidelia Igwe, African American studies, vcuafam
3.) Lisa Neumann, International studies, VCU School of World Studies
4.) Kevin Sinh, Physical Exercise and Education Science, Department of Kinesiology & Health Sciences
The scholarship funds were raised through the 10th annual Marquita Aguilar Scholarship Walk-A-Thon held on April 10 and presented to recipients on Sept. 23. The scholarship and walk-a-thon was founded by Marquita Aguilar, director of the Great Place Initiative for the College.
“I’m very thankful to have the opportunity to attend a university that cares about me and my success,” said Fidelia Igwe, scholarship recipient. “I’m grateful that VCU cares enough to create a Caring University Scholarship so I’m able to graduate.”
