Despite our country’s ongoing economic volatility and increased college costs, the financial aid picture for minorities has never looked brighter. Currently, billions of dollars are set aside each year specifically for Asian Americans, African American, Hispanic American, and Native American students. This funding is open to minorities at any level (high school through postdoctoral) for a variety of activities including study, research, travel, training, career development and creative projects.
While numerous listings provide general financial aid opportunities, there seems to be a lack of online scholarship listings specifically for minority groups. As a result, many advisors, librarians, scholars, researchers and students often have been unaware of the extensive funding opportunities available to African Americans and other minority groups. We wanted to change this by providing an extensive listing of scholarships exclusively for minority students on www.AffordableColleges.com.
NC100BW-DE offers our very own scholarship as well, the Dr. Teresa Drummond Scholarship.
