VACC proudly offers two $1000 fellowships each year. The participants must be VACC members, student or otherwise, in the process of completing graduate school or working toward licensure. Participants are required to write an essay on a particular topic. Selection of the winners is determined by a panel of judges. The Linda Heacock Memorial Fellowships are named for a dear friend of the organization who was a helper and counselor in a number of settings over her life.
