LFCC announces new fellowship program

Daily staff report

A $1.4 million estate passed on to Lord Fairfax Community College will be used to establish endowed scholarships and a fellowship at the school.

The estate belonged to Charles Ross, a resident of Front Royal who died last year at the age of 90. A release sent by the school on Tuesday states that Ross served in World War II in the European Theatre and the Battle of the Bulge. He worked as a computer technician.

The Jeffery Ross Memorial Endowed Scholarship, in memory of his son, will provide $2,000 scholarships to full-time or part-time students with financial need.

The Ross Fellowship, valued at $7,000, will cover tuition and books for a year and pay for a computer as part of a new merit award for a full-time student. The recipient of the fellowship will also receive a $1,000 stipend upon completion of an approved community service project.

The release states that between 20 and 25 students each year will benefit from the endowment.

The Ross Fellowship is available to currently enrolled students at the college and high school students in the class of 2014. The deadline to apply is April 1. For more information, visit lfcc.edu/ross.
