The GHR Chapter awards scholarship to two students at Christopher Newport University – one in the Physics, Computer Science and Engineering Department, the other in the Center for American Studies within the Political Science Department.
One of our Chapter scholarship recipients for 2018 is Hannah Broughton, a senior at Christopher Newport University, who is majoring in American Studies with a minor in U.S. National Security Studies. In high school, Hannah had the opportunity of interning with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office in Fincastle, Virginia, and she discovered a passion for studying and enforcing the law.
Each year the GHRC provides a number of scholarships to local college and university students who are pursuing degrees in areas that we believe will help promote the National Defense. This year we will again provide funds for student from Thomas Nelson Community College, Tidewater Community College and Christopher Newport University.
The individual recipient students are selected by the schools Advancement Office, based on a Memorandum of Agreement between the chapter and the school. The basic criteria are that:
• The student must be a senior or graduate student at a four year university, or in their second year at a community college.
• The student must be pursuing a degree in either a STEM or National Security related field of study.
• The student must have a 3.0 or better overall Grade Point Average.
