Foundation, the scholarship is meant, to provide undergraduate college assistance based on both need and merit to graduates of Fluvanna County High School.


Paul W. Bragg was a life-long resident of Fluvanna County. He was born in Fluvanna in 1916 and lived his entire life in the family home on Middle Ford Road, where he died at age 87 on October 9, 2003. He was a hard-working farmer, and he saved and invested wisely during his long life. He bequeathed the bulk of his considerable estate to the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation and directed the foundation to establish a scholarship fund to benefit young people graduating from Fluvanna high school

The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation and the Paul W. Bragg Scholarship Fund Advisory Committee carry out Bragg’s wishes in perpetuity. The foundation manages the Bragg Scholarship Fund as part of its permanent endowment and each year notifies the committee as to how much income is available to provide for scholarships in that year. The committee then selects recipients from among that year’s applicants. In the 10 years since its establishment, this scholarship fund has awarded a total amount of $742,000 to 70 students in support of their continuing education after high school.

This year $120,500 in new scholarship money was available to members of the Class of 2015. One $40,000 scholarship- payable over four years, four $10,000 scholarships, six $5,000 scholarships, five $2,000 scholarships, and one $500 scholarship were announced at the awards night on May 21.
