Grants & Scholarships
Langley has established a grant program to assist educators teaching elementary, middle, and high school students. Up to 30 teachers will be selected to receive a $500 grant to help support current or new classroom projects.* Educators must teach within the Hampton Roads, Virginia area. The grant monies can be used to support either a new or existing lesson plan for the 2020-2021 academic year.
*This year's application is now closed, and submissions are now under review. Winners will be announced in early December.
*For this year, Langley is extending the requests to include much-needed classroom supplies for virtual teaching, like document readers, software licenses, manipulatives, and more.
Jean M. Yokum College Scholarship
The Jean M. Yokum College Scholarships are awarded to successful applicants who are members of Langley's Constellation Club.

Each year in May, four deserving college-bound members are awarded a $5,000 scholarship. Scholarships are reviewed by the Peninsula Community Foundation and awarded based on need, academic performance, community involvement and a personal essay.
The application period for the 2020 Jean M. Yokum College Scholarship is closed. The next application period will begin February 2021. Congratulations to our 2020 Scholarship Recipients! For more information on our scholars, please visit the press release.
