The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria gave away a record $600,000 to 205 graduating seniors from Alexandria City High School.
“We are so very proud of the next generation of nurses, doctors, business leaders, computer scientists, recording artists, biologists, and professors who are heading off to college this fall thanks to the generosity of this community. Scholarships really do make dreams come true,” SFA Board Chair Priscilla Goodwin said in a statement.
The nonprofit made the announcement this week, surpassing last year’s total of $525,000 to 183 graduates.
Awardee Said Maham will be attending the University of Virginia to study nursing.
“This scholarship means a lot to me as it will help immensely as I begin my college education,” Maham said. “As an immigrant in America and a first-generation college student, I am open to and reliant on receiving any type of aid and support at my disposal as they contribute heavily to my ability to further my education. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.”
The nonprofit has awarded more than $18 million in scholarships since it was founded in 1986.
