Despite comprising 13% of the US population, a mere 1% of venture-backed founders are Black. This disparity is not only a sign of the centuries-long injustices that exist, but also a massive missed opportunity for the world.

This scholarship exists to support black entrepreneurs, who are notoriously underrepresented. In order to qualify, please share a short essay about your entrepreneurship journey and what you hope to achieve. Current or aspiring Black entrepreneurs across any field or business stage will be considered.

This scholarship is part of a 12-part, AMPLIFY Scholarship Series, spanning topics including women in tech, continuous learning, environmental science, and more. These scholarships are announced quarterly and awarded monthly throughout 2021. Follow along here!
