Every human, regardless of their background or situation, deserves a chance to succeed.
Your skin tone and financial status should not stand in the way of receiving aid so you can take your education to the next level and achieve all of your goals for your career and life.
This scholarship seeks to help first-generation, BIPOC students from Georgia so they can continue their education and achieve their dreams.
Any high school senior from Georgia who is BIPOC and will be a first-generation college student may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about yourself, what you hope to study, and what your goals are after college.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and how you plan to further your college education. What do you plan to study, what is your major, and what are your goals after college?
The application deadline is Apr 5, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 5, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 5, 2022. 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.
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). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
