College Scholarships



NOVEC has proudly presented college scholarships for more than a decade to outstanding students in the counties where we serve – Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William and Stafford – and the City of Manassas Park.

A single $1,500 scholarship is awarded to a student living in NOVEC service territory who is home-schooled or attends private school. Because the majority of NOVEC customers live in Prince William, Fairfax and Loudoun counties, two $1,500 scholarships are awarded in these counties.

In addition a $1,500 Garber scholarship is awarded to the top outstanding student. After the selections are made for the other scholarship winners, a second review is conducted to determine the Garber Scholar. This year’s winner received a total of $3,000.

The NOVEC High School Scholarship program helps graduating seniors fulfill their desire for a college education. The scholarship program is an important part of NOVEC’s long-standing commitment to education.  Students were selected to receive a NOVEC scholarship based on scholastic achievement, community service, work experience and demonstrated leadership qualities. These scholarship winners excelled academically and also participated in a variety of extracurricular activities, ranging from student government positions to sports teams. We salute and congratulate them as they begin their higher education years this fall.
