First Annual Andrew Young HBCU Scholarship Award Ceremony
From the venue:
Ambassador Andrew Young, and representatives from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and McGraw Hill Education will preside over the first annual Andrew Young HBCU Scholarship Award ceremony at the Millennium Gate Museum. Eight Andrew Young Scholars will be awarded scholarships to be used at accredited HBCUs.
This national scholarship program seeks to help advance the educational careers of high schoolers who who are interested in attending one of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Endorsed by African American leaders across the nation, including Atlanta’s Mayor Andre Dickens, the curriculum was co-authored by Dr. Matthew Daniels of Good of All and Anthony Jones of Bethune Cookman University to encourage future generations of students to become ambassadors for Dr. King’s vision to our nation and our world.
“Dr. King’s unifying principles offer a proven educational antidote to the forces of racism, conflict, and violence in our world,” said Good of All’s founder, Dr. Matthew Daniels, who teaches human rights at the Institute of World Politics in Washington, DC. “Now more than ever, it is imperative to raise up a new generation of Dr. Kings and Amb. Youngs who can lead our nation down a better path to a more peaceful future,” he added.
This scholarship program was made possible with seed funding from McGraw Hill Education and will be administered by the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
