SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE NOT APPLYING !
Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does.  Pass this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind. 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.  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. Our youth really could use these scholarships.  Thanks! (If clicking on the link doesn't work, copy and paste the URL in your web browser.) Source:  Coppin State University

College/University Information For Youth
 
Please feel free to share with any youth that can use it to help them get into college.
 
1.  WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY -  It has an opportunity for minority students to attend its MBA program for FREE, and so far, the response has been very poor.  The contact person is DERRICK S. BOONE, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Marketing, Rm. 3139 Worrell Professional Center, Babcock Graduate Schoolof Management - Wake Forest University, Winston Salem, N.C. 27109-8738.  E-mail: derrick.boone@mba.wfu.edu or visit www.wfu.edu.  Phone Number 866-925-3622  (Toll Free).
 
2.   CALL ME MISTER PROGRAM -    FOUR historical black colleges in South Carolina - BENEDICT COLLEGE, CHAFLIN UNIVERSITY, MORRIS COLLEGE AND SOUTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERITY -  will provide scholarships to Black Males who may wish to study to become Black Male Teachers in our secondary school system.  Visit  www.callmemister.clemson.edu/inex.htl  for details concerning online application or call 1-800-640-2657.   This is an excellent opportunity for a young Black male living in a household below the poverty level who has decent high school grades who may be motivated to go to college to become a school teacher.

3.  HARVARD UNIVERSITY - It is offering free tuition to families of HONOR STUDENTS in high school where their household income is less than $125,000 per year.  Visit www.fao.fas.harvard.edu  or call 617-495-1581.

4.  SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY -  Its School of Architecture is desperately seeking young men and women of color interested in pursuing a 5 year professional degree in Architecture.  Contact Mark Robbins, Dean, School of Architecture, 201 Slocum Hall, Syracuse, New York 13244-1250.  Phone 315-443-2256.  See www.soa.syr.edu/indes.php.

This is a service to our member organizations and part of our program to reduce juvenile delinquency by African American youth by encouraging them to stay in school, to endeavor to maintain a solid "B" average, and to seek to go on to college, vocational or trade school.  Giving them notice of such opportunities could be a powerful incentive not to use illegal drugs, engage in juvenile delinquent behavior and prevent school dropout.
