2017 Scholarship Application


Applications must be received on or before Friday, April 14, 2017

The Martha Mason Hill Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of the late Martha Mason Hill. Among her many exceptional qualities were her good will toward others and her strong belief in the value of education. The family of Mrs. Hill hopes to continue her legacy through this scholarship fund.

The Martha Mason Hill Memorial Foundation, Inc. offers up to three academic scholarships each year. Two will be given to students pursuing any course of study at an accredited 4-year institution; and one will be given to a student pursing a degree in fine arts at an accredited 4-year institution. Each student will receive a $1000 award. The recipients will be honored with a certificate at his or her high school award ceremony and will be presented with a $1,000 check at the Foundation's annual awards program in September 2017.

To apply, students must meet each of the following criteria:

  • Be an underrepresented ethnic minority high school student
  • Reside in Chesterfield County, VA
  • Attend a four-year accredited institution of higher education in the fall of 2017.


The recipients will be required to:

  • Submit a letter confirming fall college enrollment to the scholarship committee before the check is awarded.
  • Attend the September Foundation program for presentation of the check (or send a representative).
