NVDECS Foundation created a Friends and Family Scholarship Fund in 2012 to support strategic partners and individuals from the Northern Virginia community in providing named-scholarships for college-bound students.

Current named-scholarships administered by NVDECS include two unique offerings:

  • The Mary L. Norman Memorial Scholarship 
    Supporting non-traditional adult students from the Northern Virginia area who deferred pursuit of a degree program (Associate or Bachelor) for later in life.  
  • The Delta Decisions IQA Fellowship
    Supporting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate students (Masters or Ph.D. program) studying in the Greater Washington DC area (Baltimore to Richmond).


The NVDECS Foundation is proud to administer the Friends and Family Scholarship Fund to help build, strengthen, and support the Northern Virginia community.
