The X Scholarship


The X Scholarship, established in 2014, awards Princess Anne High School seniors with funds to supplement the costs of higher education. Scholarships are awarded each year during the Central Business District Association’s annual Internship Day luncheon. Donations to the X Scholarship fund have increased each year, allowing CBDX to enlarge the size of the awards as well as the number of recipients. Recipients are selected through an application process focused on students who demonstrate a passion for our region, particularly Virginia Beach, and the opportunities for growth here.

Contributions

Scholarship funds come from the CBDX and individual member contributions, as well as from the CBDA and its members.

A Growing Success

In its first year, X Scholarship funds totaled $1,250 and were awarded to one student. In 2015, funds raised quadrupled, and the CBDX presented two scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each to two students. In 2016, again funds were raised allowing the CBDX to present two scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each to two students who demonstrated a passion for our region, particularly Virginia Beach, and the opportunities for growth here.

The CBDF

The CBDF was formed by the CBDA Board of Directors to support the X Scholarship fund for Princess Anne High School seniors participating in CBDA's annual Internship Day program and to provide gifts to local non-profits. In addition to contributing to the enrichment of our community, one of the goals of the Foundation is to increase public awareness of the scholarship program. Contributions to CBDF are tax deductible.
