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.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 20, 2023. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
