Over $1.8M Available in Scholarships for Black Students
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on June 27, 2022 |
The degree attainment gap between black adults compared to white adults is still broad, however, black students’ college enrollment has grown in the past two decades. Financial needs are common in the black community since they are the most likely to receive federal aid or take out student loans for college.
Scholaroo - a scholarship research tool, is attempting to help the black community by centralizing more than 70 scholarships geared towards black students. Over 1000 awards will be granted with amounts ranging from $250 to $20,000.
