What Is A Black Scholarship?
A Black scholarship is a financial aid opportunity available only to African American and minority students. These scholarships are often funded by Black organizations and Historically black colleges.
Why Do Black Scholarships Exist?
Black scholarships offset the disadvantages that many African American students face. Many are victims of poverty, single parent families, and post-traumatic slavery syndrome. These scholarships allow them to "play catchup" with their white counterparts.

How Are Black Scholarships Funded?
Black scholarships are generally funded by corporate and individual donations to foundations. Many corporations, such as Xerox and Alltel, have specific scholarships and fellowships just for Black students.
