Since their founding, Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the United States have battled the issue of systemic racism head-on. By providing black and other disadvantaged students with a safe, relatable, and culturally harmonized environment to continue their education, HBCUs are the spearhead of social justice in education for the future.
Even though the contributions made by HBCUs across the years have been felt by all communities, some students still may not be able to afford to attend one of these institutions because of their background and circumstance.
To support students looking to find themselves and their niche at an HBCU, the Renee Scholarship will be awarded to one high school senior looking to attend an HBCU in 2022.
