Scholarship Foundation

The 2020 Young Designers’ Scholarship Foundation, a program for high school students interested in drafting, architecture or home building, was canceled this year due to school closures.

The competition will return in 2021, however, with the same criteria as 2020, enabling students who already had entries in progress to complete those for next year’s program.


Any questions may be directed to Laura Williamson at the Scholarship Foundation, or call 757-305-9018.

2019 Scholarship House

CVBIA members support scholarships through a special house

Sam Cohen of Joey Corp., along with Kempsville Building Materials/Carter Lumber, is the most recent builder to continue CVBIA's rich tradition of building a Scholarship House to help area students attend college.

Named The Grayton Downes Scholarship House, the home was on display during  the 2019 Homearama and highlights CVBIA members' commitment to giving back to the community through its annual scholarship program. Proceeds from the home’s sale are donated to the foundation.
