Eligibility Requirements
Education Level:
Undergraduate student
2.75 GPA or higher
Field of Study:
Business administration or finance

A racial gap in business administration or finance degree attainment has led to an underrepresentation of Black decision-makers in the world of business.

When industries lack diversity, students who may be interested in pursuing them may be discouraged or intimidated due to the underrepresentation they see. Boosting diversity in business requires improving accessibility and encouraging the next generation to stick with their goals.

This scholarship aims to support Black students as they pursue higher education, enabling them to succeed and become the business leaders of tomorrow.

Any Black undergraduate student with at least a 2.7 GPA who is majoring in finance or business administration may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how you plan to use your education to pave a path for Black people to enter into and thrive in the business field.
