How to renew your scholarship

Most – but not all – scholarships are renewable. If yours is renewable, we will mail you a renewal form [PDF] and letter in April before your school year ends. If you do not hear from us, you may not be eligible or we may have an outdated address for you. We strongly advise that you put us on your calendar as a reminder in April and contact us if you think there is a problem: (757) 622-7951 or scholarships@hamptonroadscf.org.

The 2017 renewal deadline for undergraduate, graduate, and theological students to submit completed renewal information is June 9, 2017.  The deadline for medical students is July 28, 2017.

To qualify for renewal, you must complete these steps:

  1. Send us a complete transcript for the just-completed academic year: Hampton Roads Community Foundation, 101 W. Main Street, Suite 4500, Norfolk, VA 23510. Electronic transcripts from ordering services may be sent to scholarships@hamptonroadscf.org. Grades from both semesters should be included.
  2. Complete and return to our office the renewal form we send you, along with a copy of your Student Aid Report for the upcoming academic year. Please highlight any changes in address, graduation date, college, registration status or other important information.

Please remember to tell us if you change your address or college plans.You must notify us if you transfer to a different college or university, attend school part time or take a semester off from school. Please let us know your situation so we can consider options for you. Contact us at scholarships@hamptonroadscf.org. Review the Information and Forms for Current Recipients to download request forms for study abroad, school transfers, and scholarship deferral.
