Scholarships Available for African American Students

For all you parents out there...

Pass this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind. I was heartbroken to find that, though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated monies for scholarship use to African Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest. AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE NOT APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS!

PARENTS, HEADS UP! No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship. Take the initiative to get your children involved. There is no need for money to be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for it.

Please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews, friends with children etc. 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.

Pass this info on Please! Our youth really could use these scholarships.
