The Class of 2020 starts in September 2019, but we like to give enough time to attract a diverse and dynamic pool of candidates. Applying for the Scholars Program consists of 3 steps: 1) submitting this application and your resume, 2) meeting us for an interview, and 3) final selection round. The earlier you submit, the earlier you can reserve your candidacy.
This year, we're accepting applications from Old Dominion University students and students attending Norfolk and Chesapeake campuses of Tidewater Community College. Applicants of freshman, sophomore and junior standing in the 2019-2020 acedemic year are welcome to apply. Unfortunatly we are unable to accept students who will be seniors and will be graduating in the 2019-2020 acedemic.
The essay response doesn't have to be formal or contain academic sources. Its purpose is to gauge which issues in the Hampton Roads community are important to you.
Here's the prompt:"Pick one problem that you feel is a pressing issue in the Hampton Roads community. Briefly discuss your experience with this issue and propose a possible solution to the problem."
To be considered for the program, please submit this application and send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by the date listed in the email or before a total of 50 applications are received.
