The Hanover Association of Businesses and Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with Camptown Charities, will award a $1,000, one-year scholarship to an eligible graduating senior at each of Hanover’s four high schools.

Scholarships are open to graduating Hanover County high school seniors who intend to continue their education in an accredited two- or four-year college, university, junior college or a vocational training school. This scholarship is available only to students who plan to advance their learning in the area of business studies, leadership or specialized skills training.

Scholarship applications are available in the guidance offices of Lee-Davis, Patrick Henry, Atlee and Hanover high schools.  Completed applications should be returned to the respective guidance offices no later than Friday, March 28.  Applications will not be distributed by or accepted at the HABCC office.

Scholarships will be awarded at the senior class awards assemblies in late May or early June, depending on the school schedules.

“The HABCC is pleased to offer scholarships to Hanover students,” said Executive Director Jennifer Y. Scott, APR.  “Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders. The scholarship program is our way of helping to secure a bright future for the area’s business community.”
