W&L's Claud Wins VFIC/Norfolk Southern Scholarship
Harrison Claud, a Washington and Lee University junior from Richmond, has been named a winner of the 2011-12 VMIC/Norfolk Southern Scholarship.
Claud, a graduate of Collegiate School in Richmond, is majoring in economics and is a Deans List student. He is also a member of Kathekon, the student-alumni organization, and is on the White Book Review Committee.
The scholarships are administered by the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges and are made possible by generous gifts from Norfolk Southern, one of the nation’s premier transportation companies.
The Norfolk Southern Scholarship recipients are selected in a statewide competition open to first semester junior-year applicants from the 15 member colleges and universities in the VFIC consortium who are seeking degrees in economics, business, finance, accounting or related fields and interested in careers in a corporate setting.
Claud was one of three students awarded the scholarships this year.
This prestigious award provides $10,000 in scholarship funding — $5,000 for each student’s junior year and an additional $5,000 for their senior year, contingent on continuing to meet or exceed the original scholarship requirements.
