Who are we?
The ACE Training and Scholarship Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization created in 2002 to provide tuition assistance to low income adult students applying for high school completion, English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes, occupational training, and certificate programs offered by Adult Community Education (ACE) of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). Scholarship funds are applied to tuition, books, and/or course materials.
Candidates for these services are low-income individuals and entry-level employees who live and/or work in Fairfax County. Federal guidelines that take into account total household income and family size determine income parameters.
The mission of the ACE Training and Scholarship Foundation is to:
- Establish priorities for fundraising and distributing funds for training and scholarships.
- Assist unemployed and underemployed adults to become self supporting, fully contributing members of Fairfax County.
What has the ACE Training Scholarship Foundation accomplished?
Since its inception in 2002, the ACE Training and Scholarship Foundation has provided funding of $200,438 to 976 adult students, changing lives, enriching businesses, and assisting individuals to gain marketable skills.
The Foundation continues to help develop a talented pool of qualified workers, contributing to the economic development of Fairfax County while building a strong educational, trade-oriented, and technologically-savvy workforce, and supporting the well being of families in our community.
