Scholarship Program

Henrico County Council of PTAs Scholarship Program
in honor of Dr. George H. Moody

The Henrico County Council of PTAs Scholarship has provided financial assistance to Henrico County graduates in pursuit of higher learning for more than 20 years.  The Scholarship is in honor of Dr. George H. Moody.  We believe in higher education and was committed to providing extra financial assistance that will make it possible for a young person to continue his or her education upon graduation from high school.  This could mean going to college, entering trade school, nursing training or other post high school training.
The criteria we review includes financial need, academic achievement, extracurricular and community service, the student's essay and recommendations.  In the past 5 years alone, the County Council has awarded more than 65 scholarships for more than $86,000.

Who was George H. Moody?
Dr. George H. Moody was a former teacher, principal and Superintendent of Schools, who retired in 1969 after 38 years of service.  George H. Moody's integrity and dedication to improving the quality and standards of education within the county have been well documented.  He left an indelible mark on Henrico County Public Schools during this 13 years as Superintendent.  The Henrico County Council supports Dr. Moody's level of drive and enthusiasm in supporting our graduates as they follow their educational goals.

How is the Scholarship Funded?  

100% of the funds utilized to award these scholarships come from the Henrico County Community. Donations are made from Henrico County PTA local units. 

HCCPTA Moody Scholarship applications available
 
Applications for the  HCCPTA Moody Scholarship are available at Henrico County high school guidance counselors in late January early February. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is March 31, 2018, but students are encouraged to consult early with their school counselors, as only three (3) applicants will be accepted from each school. In some schools, counselors may have an earlier deadline to determine which three applicants will proceed to HCCPTA evaluation.
 
Named for George H. Moody, former superintendent of Henrico County Public Schools, the scholarship is awarded based on financial need, academic achievement and school/community activities. Any Henrico County senior planning to pursue further study or training beyond high school may apply.
 
Each year, the number of scholarships and amount of each scholarship is dependent on the amount of donations made to the fund by local PTA/PTSA units.
 
Scholarship recipients will be notified in April and will be recognized at the HCCPTA Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet.
