The Rappahannock Scholars Program is a partnership between the University of Mary Washington and six high schools on the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula regions of Virginia. Rappahannock Scholars include students from Essex, King and Queen, Lancaster, Northumberland, Rappahannock, and Washington and Lee High Schools. The Rappahannock Scholars Program continues to develop into a vibrant and valuable collaborative effort to encourage college level study for a select group of talented and hard working students.

The program has improved the lives of extraordinary students since 2007.
