Johnson’s spirit for education and helping others was instilled by her maternal grandmother, a matriarch who diligently worked and attended an adult program for continuing education.
Johnson’s grandmother valued education, integrity and selflessness, traits that she greatly encouraged in her family. In honor of her grandmother’s legacy, the Johnson Dale Women's Empowerment Scholarship will support Black/African American women who are passionate about their education and are engaged in some form of philanthropy.
Black/African American women in New York are eligible to apply if they are high school or undergraduate students. To apply, create a video or write an essay that explains your philanthropic efforts and the lessons you have learned from your experience giving back.
