How To Renew

How to renew your scholarship

Most – but not all – scholarships are renewable. If yours is renewable, eligible students should expect emailed instructions in late April for how to complete the renewal process through our scholarship portal. If you do not hear from us, you may not be eligible or we may have an outdated address for you. We strongly advise that you put us on your calendar as a reminder in April and contact us if you think there is a problem: (757) 622-7951 or

The 2024 renewal deadline for all students to submit completed renewal information is June 14, 2024.

To qualify for renewal, you must complete these steps:

  1. Follow the instructions in the email we send you to access the online renewal form in the scholarship portal. Contact us at if you have not received an email by April 30.
  2. File the FAFSA and upload a copy of your 2024-2025 FAFSA Information Summary (formerly Student Aid Report).
  3. Upload a complete transcript for the 2023-2024 academic year. Grades from both semesters should be included.

Please remember to tell us if you change your address or college plans. You must notify us if you transfer to a different college or university, attend school part time or take a semester off from school. Please let us know your situation so we can consider options for you. Contact us at Review the Information and Forms for Current Recipients to download request forms for study abroad, school transfers, and scholarship deferral.
