The Charlottesville Scholarship Program renews scholarship awards to our Promise Scholars annually as they work toward completion of their degree or program of study. Scholars reapply by submitting their complete transcript, a personal statement, and a financial statement.  A 2.0 GPA or above must be maintained. Grants for renewing scholars increase each year to encourage the students to continue to work hard, and to make up for the decline in other financial aid as students progress through college.

Instructions for Renewing Your Charlottesville Promise Scholarship

CSP Promise Scholars are eligible for renewal of their scholarships once a year.  The deadline for renewals is MARCH 1st.

Remember:  CSP scholarships consist of one payment per year.  It is up to you to work out with your college how your scholarship should be applied—whether entirely to one semester, or split among semesters.

To renew your scholarship for another year, you MUST provide the following three items by MARCH 1st:

  1.  A complete transcript of all your grades from the beginning of your college study through the most recent grade report received as of the renewal deadline.  You must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher to qualify for a renewal of your Charlottesvile Promise Scholarship.
  2. A brief personal statement outlining your progress in school so far, and describing your goals, achievements, and extracurricular activities. You may add anything you believe will help us evaluate your renewal application.  You should submit a new personal statement each time you apply for renewal.  Please tell us what the scholarship has meant to you. Please note that we may use excerpts of your statement in our newsletters or other publicity. Be sure to put your name, e-mail address, phone number, home address, and school address on this statement.
  3. A financial statement including your expected costs for attending school, as well as your anticipated income or other sources of funds available for school expenses.  You should submit a new financial statement each time you apply for renewal.  Click here to download this form.

It is your responsibility to file these renewal materials on time. Electronic submission of documents is preferred and recommended. Please be sure your name appears on all materials submitted on your behalf. The CSP Board reserves the right to deny scholarship renewal to any student whose renewal submission is late and/or incomplete.
