Paula Collie was a lifelong educator and a beloved mother who passed away too soon. 

Paula was passionate about education and giving all students the opportunity to learn, beginning as a sixth-grade language arts teacher and becoming a resource for gifted students. Teaching is a noble and underappreciated field that has a real impact on the next generation. With a growing teacher shortage threatening the futures of today’s children, it’s critical that future educators have the resources they need to pursue their dreams.

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Paula C. Collie by supporting students who are pursuing degrees in education.

Any first-generation student in Virginia who is pursuing a degree in education may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us why you’re a good candidate for this scholarship, how you plan to help the world as a teacher, why you’re passionate about education, what challenges you’ve faced and overcome, and what you think the biggest issue affecting public education in the U.S. is.
