Education is a valuable and life-changing tool that can determine one’s career prospects and future life.
Unfortunately, access to education is still unequal, leaving many students of color behind. Disparities start as early as elementary school but are particularly prevalent in high school completion and college enrollment stats. While 66% of white 16 to 24-year-olds with a high school diploma enroll in college, only 56% of Black students of the same age do.
This scholarship aims to support African American undergraduate students who are dedicated to using their platform to give back to their community in some way after graduation.
Any undergraduate African American student who has volunteering experience and plans to give back to their community in some form in the future may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about yourself and how you plan to give back to your community in a few years.
