CBC Spouses Education Scholarship

Seeing an educational need in their congressional districts, the CBC Spouses Education Scholarship was established in 1988 by the spouses of Congressional Black Caucus members in response to federal cuts in spending for education programs and scholarships, which disproportionally affect people of color. Even today, the need for college assistance remains critical as options for receiving financial support are being more limited. This scholarship is a national program that awards scholarships to academically talented and highly motivated students, particularly African Americans, who intend to pursue full-time undergraduate, graduate or doctoral degrees.
Deadline: May 22, 2015 | Application
