The Junior League of Hampton Roads was founded in 1956 and is dedicated to promoting voluntarism and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The Volunteer Scholarship was established in 2018 to support the volunteer potential of our youth by awarding one or more scholarships ranging from $500-$3000+ to young women high school seniors demonstrating outstanding volunteer performance in the community.
Candidates for the Volunteer Scholarship must meet the following requirements:
- Must be a graduating, female senior, who has earned a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 and from Hampton, Newport News, York County, Poquoson, Williamsburg, Smithfield, Isle of Wight, or Gloucester (private or public) schools.
- Must enroll as a full-time student in any private or public post-secondary institution in the coming school year.
- Must be involved in a volunteer capacity in the community. Volunteer work must be separate from any that is required by student’s school.
Applications for 2023 will open up next spring. Check back in around March for more information!
