Governor's School Foundation
Rising costs coupled with limited funding have prompted many public educational institutions to seek partnerships with individuals and organizations within the private sector in order to enhance the educational opportunities offered to students. The Central Virginia Governor’s School Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation formed to receive contributions from individuals, organizations, businesses, and institutions for the purpose of promoting and enhancing the educational program provided for students by the Central Virginia Governor’s School for Science and Technology.
The Foundation is governed by a board of trustees who represent each of the five school divisions that participate in the regional Governor’s School. Foundation funds are used to supplement the normal operating budget of the Governor’s School. CVGS could not deliver its current curriculum without the Foundation’s support. Funds are utilized to provide students with college scholarships, access to state-of-the-art technology, in-depth research opportunities, sophisticated laboratory experiences.
The CVGS Foundation also provides funding for three $750 scholarships for selected CVGS seniors each spring. The CVGS Foundation Scholarship Committee selects the awardees from among all the applicants who complete and submit the application form and required recommendations by the deadline. A link to the application, as well as another to the recommendation form, follows.
