The mission of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. is to improve the quality of life within our communities and enhance educational and economic opportunities for all African Americans. The organization's national scholarship program is operated at the local level through their 100 Black Men chapter network.
The program provides scholarships to national applicants. The award is only open to 100 Black Men mentees, Collegiate 100®, or affiliates who are graduating high school seniors or college undergraduates enrolled full-time in an accredited post-secondary institution.
Applicants must be:
• Be a 100 Black Men Chapter mentee or affiliate as verified by the local Chapter
• Be a U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident
• Currently or planning to be enrolled in the Fall semester of 2019-2020 academic year as a full-time undergraduate
• Maintain full-time status during entire 2019-2020 academic year
• Have a minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale
• Selected applicants will be qualified mentees or affiliates with a proven financial need
Scholarships are awarded to eligible applicants who demonstrate they have a significant gap in the financial resources needed to pay for their post-secondary/college education.
Upon completion of the evaluation, selection and award determination process, 100 Black Men Chapters and the scholarship recipients will be notified via email.
