Help Honor Our Awesome Staff by Launching a Scholarship in their Name

Each spring, the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria collaborates with parents and community leaders to say thank you to and celebrate exceptional ACPS teachers or staff members and raise money for a scholarship in the teacher’s honor.

Join us in celebrating these outstanding ACPS teachers and staff members who are guests of honor at parties being hosted to raise funds for the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria. Once $3,000 has been raised at an event, a scholarship will be established in the honoree’s name. Scholarships created through these parties will be awarded to T.C. Williams class of 2019 graduates. Please plan to attend one of these upcoming parties or host one of your own! You can give to support a scholarship even if you cannot attend. Learn more online and email

Since its inception in 1986, the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria has helped more than 4,600 T.C. Williams High School students go to college and has provided more than $14.5 million in scholarships. Each year, the Scholarship Fund awards nearly $1 million in scholarships to our graduates with financial need. It also provides financial assistance to students throughout all four years of college. More than half of the 2018 recipients are the first in their family to go to college.

This year, teachers from T.C. Williams High School, Douglas MacArthur Elementary School and George Mason Elementary School, along with Interim Superintendent Lois F. Berlin, are all being celebrated for their steadfast commitment and dedication to the education of our students.
