African American and Native American people in the United States have historically been treated inequitably, which has produced a racial wealth gap.

Due to the limited financial resources of many Native American and African American families, it can be difficult to send their kids to college. The inaccessibility of college closes off many career opportunities for underrepresented students, which perpetuates the wealth gap.

This scholarship seeks to support underserved students with financial limitations who want to attend an accredited college, university or trade school.

Any African American or Native American high school senior or undergraduate student in Pennsylvania with at least a 2.75 GPA, financial need and community service experience may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but those in Allegheny County or Beaver County are preferred.

To apply, answer one of the four prompts below in a short essay.

Selection Criteria:
Perseverance, Integrity, Compassion
