2015 Scholarships Available For Black Students
Every year, more than $50 billion dollars in scholarships are given away to students of all ethnic backgrounds. This number includes many awards that are given only to African American students and other minorities.
Such opportunities are needed because African Americans continue to show the greatest need in the area of financial assistance. Even more, the education gap between minority students and their white counterparts is still very wide.
This web site was designed to help African American students find the latest scholarships and grants that are being given away by non-profit organizations, government agencies and major corporations.
Most of these programs aim to assist disadvantaged people who come from poor families and can not afford to pay for college. However, there are also programs that recognize and award students who can demonstrate excellence in education, sports, community service, etc. regardless of their financial status.
Most scholarships can be renewed for multiple years, and do not have to be repaid as long all of the agreed-upon terms are being met. Even more, scholarships can typically be used for, not just tuition, but also to pay for rooming, books, and other college needs!
