As the cost of post-secondary education increases, access to educational programming is becoming less accessible to marginalized groups and creates great barriers for opportunities to DREAM out loud. The Kynnedy Simone ‘I Am The Dream’ Scholarship aims to help scholars maximize their dreams of obtaining higher education. 

Eligible applicants include African American female high school seniors with a 2.5 GPA or higher, planning to enroll in a two or four year undergraduate program or trade/vocational program beginning Summer 2023 or Fall 2023. Applicants must have volunteer or community service experience to apply for this scholarship.

To apply, please submit a two minute video of yourself explaining why YOU are the dream. You should be the only subject in your video, and your video should be recorded with a solid background or background with no major distractions. Please upload your video link to your application and title it as follows: YOUR NAME - I Am The Dream. An example of the video title would appear as: ‘Kynnedy Simone - I Am The Dream’. 

Additionally, in a written essay of no more than 250 words, please tell us about your community service experience, school and extracurricular activities, and any additional information you would like to share.
