Overview
Our generous donors love helping students achieve their full potential.  That’s why they entrust us to administer permanent scholarship funds in their names using criteria they have selected. Since 1950 we have awarded more than $18 million in college scholarships making us southeastern Virginia’s largest scholarship provider.

This year we are helping 391 students attend college with help from nearly $1.2 million in Hampton Roads Community Foundation scholarships -- the most awarded in a single year.

Applications for the 2014-15 academic year will go live December 1. Most scholarships will use a new electronic application that utilizes one form to apply for multiple scholarships.

March 1, 2015 is the deadline for completing most scholarships.  Click here to learn more about applying for 2015-16 scholarships for college.
