Downtown 100 Scholarship

Downtown 100 2022 Scholarship Information & Application

The Downtown 100 is a highly motivated group of 100 emerging leaders and young professionals, 21-40 years old, from Downtown Norfolk’s business, cultural and residential communities. They serve as ambassadors for the Downtown Norfolk Council and are committed to a dynamic, attractive and prosperous downtown.


The purpose of the Downtown 100 Scholarship is to offer financial assistance to graduating high school seniors enrolled in Norfolk Public Schools who have opted to attend a four-year college, university, or trade school in the Hampton Roads region.

This scholarship will be awarded to students who have made an impact in the local community and who are passionate about, and committed to Norfolk, the surrounding region, and its future growth.

Downtown 100 will be partnering with ACCESS College Foundation to turn our $1,000 annual scholarship into $6,000 that will be awarded to a Norfolk Public Schools student this spring. ACCESS College Foundation is a Norfolk-based nonprofit that was founded in 1988. Over the last 30+ years, they have helped provide an opportunity for 60,000 students to receive a college education.
