Scholarships Top $1 Million for the First Time

The Hampton Roads Community Foundation awarded in September 2013 more than $1 million in college scholarships – the largest amount awarded in a single year since its founding in 1950. Recipients include 358 area students attending more than 65 different colleges and universities during 2013-14. Since 1951 the community foundation has provided more than $18 million in scholarship funding that has helped more than 3,900 college students.

The scholarships were approved during the community foundation’s recent meeting, which also awarded more than $1.1 million in grants to 11 nonprofit organizations working in health and human services in Hampton Roads.
