Scholarship awards will be based on academic performance, community service and financial need. The four-year scholarships can be applied to any field of study.

The TBA Scholarship Foundation is supported by proceeds from the sale of an annual scholarship house, rent from an annual scholarship apartment, and endowments and contributions from TBA member firms and individuals.

Applications are available from high school guidance counselors in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Franklin and Southampton County schools, as well as the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  They can also be downloaded from the TBA web site at
