Black 2 Life(B2L) is happy to announce our first college scholarship for the upcoming 2019 fall college semester. Our scholarship is named the Black 2 School scholarship and is available to black males who are graduating high school seniors or current undergraduates with a declared education major.
Black 2 Life as an organization feels it is important to support black males that will be entering the Education field as teachers in our elementary, middle and high schools in the upcoming years. We have read recent articles where black men represent 1% or less of all teachers in some states, however many black students are positively influenced by the few they might come across. We hope that our scholarship help ease the financial burden of college costs.
B2L will be providing (4) - $500 scholarships. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.5, demonstrate diversity, and be an incoming or current Undergraduate with Education as their major. A short essay detailing why education is important to the applicant is also a requirement. See link below for full details.
The deadline for applications is July 10th, 2019 and selections will be made by July 17th, 2019.
