The Army of Northern Virginia of the Sons of Confederate Veterans is proud to present its annual scholarship, the Russell Darden Scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to the High School Senior submitting the best essay to this Department.  The scholarship amount is approximately $2,000.
 
The essay should be between 2,000-2,500 words and reflective of the declared topic. Entries should include the essay, applicant's contact information, and contact information of the college or university attending upon graduation. All entries for 2015 should be postmarked no later than August 15, 2015.

The 2015 essay subject should cover the critical period of July 1863 to July 1864. Your essay should begin with the Battle of Gettysburg and Siege / loss of Vicksburg and the disastrous year that followed. Give your thoughts on the possibility that the war could be lost and what could be done to win the War for Southern Independence.

Additionally, the deadline for the 2016 Russell Darden Scholarship is August 15, 2016. The 2016 essay subject will be the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley. Your essay should begin with the tragic history of the first successful submarine attack and cover the advanced engineering, technology and innovations involved in the submersible's construction. What impact has the Hunley made on military history.

I look forward to reading your essays and awarding the scholarship to the author of the winning essay.
