Who Can Apply:
- When families are provided with the tools they need to create generational wealth, cycles of poverty can be broken.
- For a variety of reasons, children who are born into low-income homes often remain in the low income bracket into adulthood as well. Due to a combination of underfunded grade schools, fewer extracurricular opportunities, the need to work while in school, and less financial freedom when choosing a college, students born into poverty often continue to struggle, creating a cycle of intergenerational poverty that predominantly affects Black students and students of other underrepresented minority groups.
- This scholarship aims to support students who are committed to providing financial literacy to their communities.
- Any Black, Caribbean American or African American high school senior, two or four-year undergraduate or trade/vocational student who has non-profit or volunteering experience and is studying economics, finance or accounting may apply for this scholarship.
Submission: To apply, tell us how you plan to educate your community about financial literacy.
Deadline: August 29, 2023
