Students across the Hampton Roads area work hard to earn top marks, dreaming of the college they’ll attend and the education they’ll receive. Unfortunately, many of these students won’t be able to afford it.
We want these students to reach their full potential. To help them accomplish this, the Friends of Hampton Roads offers scholarships to African-American high school seniors in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement. Since 1989, more than $500 thousand in scholarships have been awarded.
Purpose To provide scholarships to deserving students who demonstrate a financial need and who are planning to attend a four-year college beginning Fall 2017.
