African American journalist and editor Susan L. Taylor once said that, “whatever we believe about ourselves and our abilities comes true for us.”

By this logic, students can achieve whatever great things they desire as long as they have the right attitude and are willing to believe in themselves and their dreams. In a world where prejudice is still a prominent issue, African American students need to be lifted up and reminded that despite what goes on around them, they are able to accomplish great things. As a way of supporting African American students, the Opportunity for Our People Scholarship will award a student attending a historically black college or university (HBCU).

African American undergraduate students are eligible to apply if they are currently attending an HBCU. To apply, write about an unpopular opinion you have and why you stand by that belief.
