The HRGCC Annual Scholarship is available to graduating high school seniors residing in the Hampton Roads area. To be considered, you must submit a 600 - to 1000 - word essay on the following topic: "For more than half a century, the U.S. has imposed an embargo on most trade with Cuba. For years, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has called for the end of the embargo. In October, Virginia Governor McAuliffe and eight other governors sent a letter to Members of Congress echoing the call for a repeal of the embargo. What do you believe would be the effects of lifting the Cuban embargo on the State of Virginia and the economy of Hampton Roads?"
