The John A. Herring Scholarship for Social Awareness

UVA Serpentine Society

Two $5,000 scholarships are awarded annually to two current students, either undergraduate or graduate, of any year who demonstrate leadership, citizenship, and fellowship and have actively supported, through volunteerism and advocacy, the LGBTQ Center at the University of Virginia.

Rather than self-nomination, the recipient will be selected through nominations submitted from peers, students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The student will be known for their exemplary acts of kindness toward people of diverse backgrounds and their participation in the education of others.

Nominations for the 2017 John Herring Scholarship closed on April 30, 2017
