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 $20 million in college scholarships making us southeastern Virginia’s largest scholarship provider.

In 2016-17 we are helping 400 students attend college with help from more than $1.27 million in Hampton Roads Community Foundation scholarships -- the most awarded in a single year.
