The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge is honored to offer nearly 60 scholarship opportunities, which will distribute over $100,000 each year. Our scholarships benefit graduating high school seniors and adult learners seeking new skills and higher education, and includes the pursuit of a technical certificate at a community college or trade school, associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, or graduate degree.
With a few exceptions, only one online scholarship application is required to apply to our scholarship program.
Who May Apply?
Currently, most Community Foundation scholarships are available to residents of the independent cities of Staunton and Waynesboro, and the counties of Augusta, Highland, and Nelson in Virginia. Although there are unique eligibility requirements for each scholarship, we designed our online scholarship application to help us match you to the specific scholarships for which you are eligible.
