The York High School Alumni Association, Inc. awards educational scholarships annually to graduating seniors of York High to the College or Technical School of their choice. In 2023 we are giving two $5,000 scholarships. Additional scholarships are available to YHS seniors planning to attend Christopher Newport University. Scholarships are available to deserving YHS seniors if they complete the application process and are selected.

Christopher Newport University has a perpetual endowed scholarship available for a qualifying YHS senior planning to attend CNU. This dedicated YHS Alumni Association Scholarship was funded during the celebration of York High’s 50th anniversary in 2004 (known as “The Golden Jubilee”). Proceeds of these funds will be made available to support part of the selected individual's tertiary education. For further information and forms, applicants should contact the CNU Office of Financial Aid at (757) 594-7170 or visit http://financialaid.cnu.edu. CNU makes its own selection and distributes the funds available to our YHS graduates. If no YHS graduate applies for the CNU endowment it will be used to support another deserving CNU applicant. Therefore, it is crucial that YHS seniors planning to continue their education at CNU be made aware of the existence of this additional scholarship. Excellent opportunity!
