Talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.

In America, countless brilliant minds have gone and continue to go undiscovered and unsupported because they are born Black.

Our society and world as a whole are immeasurably worse off for it.

In the spirit of organizations like The Hidden Genius Project that find and nurture promising young Black students who may not otherwise receive sufficient support, the Undiscovered Brilliance Scholarship for African-Americans aims to support a brilliant Black student with ambitious dreams.

It will be awarded to a talented Black student at any level of education or field of study on the basis of their ambition, talent, and drive, as well as on the impact that additional support would have for them.

This scholarship is part of the Mechanism Ventures Impact Series.
