Our future as a society is largely dependent upon the preparedness and ultimate success of our youth.
The multiplicity of challenges facing many Black and brown students can be daunting. The most seminal of these challenges is long-standing inequity in access to adequate educational resources. This foundational imbalance has been ever-present for generations. Now, it’s time to be much more intentional about overcoming these societal challenges.
Despite the overall academic achievement of this generation, many of these students struggle to break out of their environment; class and racial inequities often result in a lack of access to the resources required to apply to and attend college.
As African-American men that are products of a few of our nation’s largest public school systems, we are keenly aware of how exacerbated these challenges can be for young black men.
With this in mind, the Endeavor Award will go to one black male student from Georgia each year who plans to attend a 4-year college or university in hopes that the graduates will have positive impacts in the local community in years to follow.
To apply, please write about yourself and the degree you plan on pursuing in college.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
