The sponsoring companies improve morale by demonstrating to employees their commitment to the community. They also benefit from employing top-notch local students, who may later join their company. Most importantly, we all gain by helping America’s youth develop an appreciation and desire to pursue a scientific or technical career.

The AFCEA NOVA Scholarship Committee works with the Committee Chair to support and administer the scholarship program. The committee meets 3-4 times a year to coordinate outreach, review policy and procedures, plan events, consider new ideas and initiatives, network, and enjoy each others’ company. Many members serve as points of contact for our annual communication and outreach efforts to local school districts, universities, military communities, and government agencies.
