This Black History Month, we are excited to launch the “Black Leaders scholarship” among our exclusive list of 300+ scholarships for Black students. This scholarship seeks to honor the significant contributions and enduring legacy of Black leaders throughout history and in our lives today. By inviting students to share stories of inspiration and influence, we aim to continue the conversation about the pivotal roles that Black individuals have played in shaping U.S. history as well as shaping the world. 

We encourage you to dive into the stories of Black leaders who have inspired you. This scholarship is designed for students to express their admiration and respect for Black leaders, whether they are historical figures whose actions have steered the course of history or contemporary individuals making strides in their communities. It’s an opportunity for reflection on the impact of these leaders on personal growth, societal progress, and the ongoing struggle for equality and justice. Tell us about what qualities of a leader you believe are important, especially in today’s times. 

When applying, explore the essence of leadership and the diverse ways in which Black leaders have inspired resilience, ambition, and change. This exploration aims not only to honor the legacies of these influential figures but also to ignite a passion for leadership and advocacy in the next generation.

This scholarship is open to students of all educational levels and GPAs. The only prerequisite is a genuine reflection on the leadership and legacy of Black figures who have touched your life. Join us in this moment of reflection and let your voice be heard
