It is a norm for African parents to urge their kids towards traditional jobs in Law, Medicine, Engineering etc, rather than exploring any form of creativity. The college scholarship is one of our initiatives which is set to encourage and empower college students of African descent to explore their creativity. Through this initiative, five (5) college students of African descent will be awarded $2,000 each and internship opportunities for their creativity.
Who can participate
Must be currently enrolled a college as an undergraduate or graduate student
Must identify as African or of African descent
Must be 18 years or older
Content creators, dancers, foodie/chef, comedians etc.
