Gun violence is a huge problem in the United States.

An average of 110 people die every day as a result of gun violence. It’s easy to see this issue as just a statistic, but it affects real people; Kade Lewin became another victim of gun violence at the age of 12. He was a straight-A student who was loved dearly by his family and friends. The Kade Lewin Scholarship exists in honor of his memory, helping to raise awareness about gun violence while providing financial aid for students from New York City.

This scholarship is specifically for African American high school seniors. Students applying must be from low-income backgrounds and live in New York City. To apply, write about the adversity you have faced growing up in New York City, how gun violence has had an effect on you, and how college will make an impact on your life.
