Debra Victoria Thomas-Banks was a strong advocate of the importance of education and the opportunities it presented. 

Debra Victoria was a single mother and often worked eighty hours a week to fund her daughter’s education. Debra sadly passed away due to ovarian cancer in 2021 but her daughter has kept her legacy alive by supporting students from single-parent homes.

This scholarship aims to honor the legacy of Debra Victoria by supporting underrepresented students from single-parent households so they can complete their education.

Any undergraduate Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color (BIPOC) student from a single-parent household with a 3.0 GPA or higher may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how living in a single-parent household has impacted your career goals and how you plan to pursue your goals after college.
