2019 Scholarship Application


Applications must be received on or before Monday, April 1, 2019

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 (one per recipient). Two $1500 awards are designated for eligible students pursuing any course of study at an accredited 4-year institution. One $1000 scholarship is designated for a student pursing a degree in fine arts at an accredited 4-year institution. Each recipient will be honored with a certificate at his or her high school award ceremony and will be presented with a check at the Foundation's annual awards program in September 2019.

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 2019.

The recipients will be required to:

  • Submit a letter confirming fall college enrollment to the scholarship committee before the check is awarded.
