Students of color have made great strides in higher education in recent years, but there is still a prevalent gap in degree attainment. 

45% of white 25 to 29-year-olds hold a bachelor’s degree or higher as compared to only 29% of Black adults in the same age range. African American students still face barriers when pursuing higher education, especially students who are low-income and/or first-generation.

This scholarship seeks to support low-income African American students in Pennsylvania who have a history of self-improvement or beating the odds.

Any first-generation college, low-income African American senior graduating from a high school in Pennsylvania may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about a time when you overcame an obstacle and how that experience will help you in the future.
