African-American students are not applying for scholarships
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 scholarships 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 your door and ask if you 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.
