Upon completion of High School, students differ in the future career paths they pursue. While there are many different avenues for students to take, most seek out opportunities in higher education. In fact, 16.2 million students matriculated into college last Spring 2022. 

Caucasian students represent more than half of the college bodies at their four-year post-secondary institutions as Black and Hispanic students enroll more in community colleges. 

In an effort to diminish this racial disparity, this scholarship will support a minority first-generation college student seeking a bachelor's degree. High School graduates from Thurgood Marshall Academy in Harlem who fit these criteria and maintain at least a 3.0 GPA are encouraged to apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, please tell us your life story and the reasons behind your pursuit of higher education.
