The Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation is a 501(c)(3) support organization of the Chamber that serves Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County with a mission focused on initiatives in the areas of education, workforce development, quality of life and community development.
Academic Achievers is intended to provide monetary assistance to students as they enter their career development journey whether that be a certification program or a four-year degree.
High School seniors have many options to continue their education once they graduate, and the Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation has the opportunity to help! Over the last 11 years, the Chamber Foundation, through the generous contributions of member businesses and community leaders, has awarded over $200,000 in scholarships to our local students to help them achieve the first step on their career path.
With the rising costs of education, we truly believe that we are providing a helping hand to students who are furthering their education. These scholarship investments are an investment in our future workforce! The Scholarships can be used for vocational or technical school, credentialing programs, or a two or four-year college.
Applications are now open for the 2023 Academic Achievers Program. Applications will be accepted until March 30, 2023.
