Virginia Branch Scholarship


The Virginia Branch of the Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the
Colony of Virginia announces the annual scholarship award for an essay on a topic
related to the Huguenots. The essay should be focused on a relatively limited idea
and any research should be documented with notes and bibliography.

Competition is open to high school juniors through college juniors who are or will be
accepted to an accredited college. They must be residents of Virginia or children of
Virginia Branch members. Some preference may be given to relatives of members.


Essays must be typed, double-spaced, and contain at least 1,000 words. Footnotes
and a bibliography should be included. On computers, 12 pt. 
A good draft submitted by email earlier can receive editorial commentary, if necessary.
The winner(s) will be announced at the Fall Meeting of the Virginia Branch.
