Some GREAT
INFORMATION  that should be passed on…..
Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does and to
anyone and everyone that comes to mind. Though there are a number of companies
and organizations that have donated money for scholarships to African Americans,
a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest or awareness.
Take the initiative to get your children involved. Money shouldn’t 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
, schools, churches, 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.
