About Us

The Rappahannock Scholars Program is a partnership between the University of Mary Washington and six high schools in the Northern Neck region of Virginia.  Rappahannock Scholars include students from Essex, King and Queen Central, 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 benefited the lives of extraordinary students since 2007.
