Education Foundation Grant

            Richmond County Public Schools personnel or community members are invited to apply for an Education Foundation Grant. There are two types of grants, each with its own application.


  • The Professional Development Grant provides financial support for personal enrichment experiences and professional development for Richmond County Public School educators. Applicants should design and submit a program of study or experiences which will enhance their performance as an educator and for their students. 


  • The Instructional Grant provides financial support for educators, educational teams and interested groups to support the learning opportunities outside the regular classroom experience. Applicants must submit their plan for innovative learning and enrichment programs to assist students in achieving their highest potential. 


Student Scholarship(s)

            Rappahannock High School seniors may apply for the Michael Todd Jewell Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is given annually to a senior who desires to seek employment in the trades industry. The scholarship may be used for training and equipment or tools. More than one scholarship may be offered depending on the availability of funds. The application can be found on the foundation link on the Richmond County School Division’s website. 



Education is the investment our generation makes in the future of our community, state and nation.
