5 strong scholarship

Deadline: December 31, 2023

The 5 strong scholarship foundation Inc. is offering  full-tuition scholarships to brilliant students from underrepresented backgrounds. To achieve this, 5 Strong Foundation partners with Historically Black Universities and Colleges (HBCUs) to award promising student leaders from matriculation to graduation. 

The foundation provides bimonthly College Ready Prep Sessions and work with participating HBCUs to arrange scholarships and admission as a 5-scholar cohort. Selected applicants are organized into teams of 5 scholars, with the objective of helping each cohort graduate together.

The 5 strong foundation also provides monthly cohort meetings and ongoing support from a team of experienced educators with over 30 years of combined experience helping minority students graduate from high school and get into college.

The primary objective of the 5 Strong Scholarship Foundation is to improve the retention and graduation rates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities by providing assistance to academically talented student leaders throughout their enrollment and until they successfully obtain their degrees. Winning the 5 strong scholarship award will help advance your academic and career goals.
