Please Share:


Even if you do not have a college-aged student at home, please share this with someone who does; pass this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind….especially  churches, fraternities, sororities, clubs, etc. Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated monies for scholarships which are to be used for the further education of African Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest or knowledge.

No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship!! Please help get our children involved. There is no need for money to be returned to donating companies or organizations because we fail to apply for it. Please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews, friends with children etc. and help get them involved in applying for these scholarships. We must get the word out that money is available. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one , you probably already know how useful additional money can be. Our youth really could use these scholarships. Thanks! (If clicking on the link doesn’t work, copy and paste the URL in your web browser.)
