More than 40 students were awarded scholarships for the fall 2018 semester at Paul D. Camp Community College.
 
Scholarships for continuing and high school students were available, as well as two Neall Family Charitable Foundation Scholarships, offered through the Virginia Foundation of Community College Education (VFCCE) for the second consecutive year. Eight more were awarded the Smithfield Foundation Scholarship.
