Instructions for Renewing Your Charlottesville Promise or Preston Coiner Scholarship
CSP Promise and Preston Coiner Scholars are eligible for renewal of their scholarships once a year. The deadline for all 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:
- 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.
- 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. 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.
- 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. Click here to download this form.
Special Note regarding Preston Coiner Scholarship Renewals: The Preston Coiner Scholarship may be renewed, in which case the student would only need to submit his/her most recent complete college transcript, financial statement, and personal statement. No essay will be required for renewal applicants, but those students would have to compete against any new applicants.
It is your responsibility to file these renewal materials on time. 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.
