Patrick Henry Scholarship
Named to honor the great American patriot who served on Hampden-Sydney's first Board of Trustees and was five times Governor of Virginia, Patrick Henry Scholarships recognize students who stand out among their classmates. Candidates must have demonstrated leadership by participating in numerous activities both in their school and in their community. Their participation must have led to positions of responsibility as evidence of the confidence and respect of both peers and adults.
There must also be evidence of strong academic achievement within a competitive college preparatory program. Rank in class, while not required to be as high, must still be impressive in relation to the program in which the candidate is enrolled. SAT I scores for Patrick Henry scholars are usually 1250 or better. As with all Honors categories, application for admission to the College is a prerequisite for consideration.
Patrick Henry Scholars will receive a grant of $20,000 for tuition, fees, room and board.
