The Fred W. Beazley Scholarship
The Beazley Scholarship fund was established in April 1984, by the Chancellor, Dr. Pat Robertson, in memory of the late Fred W. Beazley. Mr. Beazley was a leading businessman in the Tidewater area and significant supporter of Dr. Robertson's early ministry. The scholarship criteria emphasize academic merit and residency history. First consideration is given to students from the Tidewater region of Virginia who have excellent academic histories and, otherwise, meet the criteria. However, students with excellent academic histories not from the Tidewater region of Virginia are also encouraged to apply in the event there are not enough suitable applicants from Tidewater for the award. The scholarship is 100 percent of tuition costs plus a book stipend of up to $300 per term. For purposes of this scholarship, the Tidewater region is defined as the following cities and counties: Chesapeake, Gloucester County, Hampton, James City County, Newport News, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg and York County. Those next to be considered will be from the states of Virginia and North Carolina, then all other states and countries.
