About the Program

The CIVIC Scholars Program is a collaborative initiative between the CIVIC Leadership Institute, Old Dominion University and Tidewater Community College. Our mission is to foster a spirit of civic engagement, professionalism, and leadership in college students of Hampton Roads while connecting them to established business and community leaders, in order to build a cohort of young leaders who are excellently prepared for their careers.

CIVIC Scholars programming runs concurrently with the 9-month academic year and focuses on skills-based workshops and exposure to regional and industry leaders. Students engage with issues that Hampton Roads and other communities face and are challenged to think critically about possible solutions and innovations.  

The program is available to students attending Old Dominion University and Tidewater Community College.
