Scholarships

In the last year alone, we’ve given out more than $30,000 in scholarships to deserving African American students in the Fresno area.

We all know that paying for college can be a challenge for most in our community. Our goal is to close the financial gap for our students so they will have an easier time focusing on pursuing their degrees. By investing in our students, we’re investing in ourselves. In past years, our scholarship recipients have been able to use the aid for things such as utilities, groceries and rent assistance.
