Chesterfield County is a first choice community for residents, businesses and visitors in which to live, work, raise a family and play. If you are a Chesterfield County resident, you can take pride in the recognition we have already received, such as "The 17th Best Place to Live in America;" "One of the 100 Best Communities in America for Young People;" the lowest crime rate in the Richmond Metropolitan region and many other kudos. Providing you with the best possible quality of life is our main mission as a local government.
Chesterfield County also offers a scholarship. The Chesterfield County Black History Month Celebration Program is sponsoring the Leadership for the 21st Century Scholarships for eligible Chesterfield County Public School students. Applicants must be high school seniors who plan on attending a Virginia college/university, and must have a 2.8 GPA. Recipients are notified in February.
