Who Can Apply:
- 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.
Submission: To apply, write about an unpopular opinion you have and why you stand by that belief.
