List of Scholarships for African American Students

We were told that not enough African American students are applying for these scholarships. There are a number of companies and organizations who have donated money for scholarships to African Americans, but a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of awareness or lack of interest.

Please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews, friends with children, etc. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one, this money can be very useful.
