In 2014, Virginia Asphalt Association established a scholarship program for dependents of VAA member companies. The scholarship provides an opportunity for VAA to give back to students pursuing degrees and furthering their education. Thanks to our donors, to date, we have been able to award over $140,000.00 in scholarships. The Program is managed under the auspices of the NAPA Research and Education Foundation (NAPAREF) Scholarship Program, a 501(c) 3 organization. All Richard J. Schreck Scholarship Tournament proceeds will be used to support the Richard J Schreck/NAPAREF Scholarship.
