From George Floyd to Breonna Taylor, from Michael Brown to Eric Garner, police killing black people is a steady, sickening reality in the United States.
Police in the US kill people at a rate thousands of percent higher than any other developed country. Despite this, a stunning 99% of police killings do not result in officers being charged with a crime.

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.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements).
