Must Read

The Bull Run Civil War Round Table once again is seeking to reward a local high-school senior who exhibits a passion for American history, particularly concerning the Civil War, with a $2,000 scholarship toward their continued education.

The group has given the award to a student annually since 2013, based on an assessment of a locally based Civil War essay, high-school grades and participation, and history teachers’ recommendations.

High-school seniors from the Northern Virginia area may apply for the scholarship. Applicants must submit a transcript demonstrating grades and courses, a written description of extra-curricular activities, a picture of themselves taken at a local historical sign related to the Civil War and a written recommendation from a history teacher at their high school.

The Round Table Scholarship Committee will evaluate these submissions and interview the top candidates before selecting the winner. Application packages may be submitted via e-mail to BRCWRTScholarship@gmail.com or mailed to: BRCWRT-Scholarship Team, P.O. Box 2147, Centreville, VA 20122.


The non-profit Bull Run Civil War Round Table was established in May 1991 to bring together those wishing to expand and share knowledge of the Civil War, accomplishing this through lectures, research, field trips and active participation in the preservation of Civil War sites. The group’s Website is bullruncwrt.org.

Previous recipients of the Bull Run Civil War Round Table Scholarship include: Taylor McConnell of West Springfield High School, Caroline Howard of Osbourn Park High School, Brook Roberts of Robinson Secondary School, Aaron Pirnat of Herndon High School, Alexander Hughes of Osbourn High School, Joseph LaVigne of Seton High School, Jack Tatum of Oakton High School, Jacob Fajer of Westfield High School and Isabelle Anderson Thomas Edison High School.
