To be eligible for the Joyce E Dawkins Memorial Scholarship, applicants must be a student whose parent, grandparent or legal guardian is either currently employed or was previously employed in the Fairfax County Public Schools pupil transportation field. Submit scholarship applications by November 1 for the spring semester and May 1 for the fall semester.

“I wanted to thank you for awarding me with the FEA Mimi Dash scholarships over the past several years. With your help I was able to purchase books and a laptop … I’m getting closer to my dream! I recently graduated from George Mason University with my masters degree. I begin a one year internship with Alexandria City Public Schools in August to meet the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) requirements to become a school psychologist. After the internship I look forward to working in Fairfax County Public Schools.  Again, thank you so much! I believe we all share in this success together.”   Rosemary Brient, M.A. (George Mason University, School Psychology Program)
