LURAY, Va. – The Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Educational Foundation Inc. has added a new scholarship to its list of available funds to assist LFCC students with their education. The Luray Rotary Club Scholarship was recently established by the Luray Rotary Club to benefit Page County residents.

The Luray Rotary Club Scholarship will be awarded annually to full- and/or part-time LFCC students who reside in Page County. The scholarship award may be applied toward tuition, fees and/or books and will be divided equally between the fall and spring semesters. Satisfactory academic progress (minimum grade point average of 2.0) must be maintained in order for the recipient to receive the award for the spring semester.

Formed in 1905, Rotary International is a service organization of more than 1.2 million business and professional leaders. With more than 32,000 Rotary Clubs in over 168 countries, the organization is headquartered in Evanston, Ill. Rotary International District 7570 is one of 529 districts worldwide. The district covers Western Virginia and Northeastern Tennessee and has nearly 4,200 members and 83 clubs, including the Luray Rotary Club.
