Who Can Apply:
- Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) offer a unique path in higher education that allows minority students to flourish.
- The gap in college attainment still persists, with just 19% of Black Americans over the age of 25 holding a bachelor’s degree while 33% of white Americans have one. The environment and resources present at HBCUs can be integral in helping underrepresented students and other motivated students complete their degrees so they can go on to amazing careers.
- This scholarship aims to support graduating high school seniors so they have the resources necessary to further their education at an HBCU.
- Any high school student who has at least a 3.5 GPA and is on the honor roll or merit list may apply for this scholarship if they will be a first-generation college student.
