Description

Since its inception in 1909, the NAACP has taken a leading role in fighting to secure positive, equitable changes in educational institutions throughout the nation. The NAACP recognizes, however, that far too many of Americas most promising citizens are still prevented from pursuing their educational goals due to limited financial resources. In an effort to promote equal opportunity in education, the NAACP annually offers the Earl G. Graves, Agnes Jones Jackson, Louis Stokes, Lillian & Samuel Sutton, Roy Wilkins and Hubertus W. V. Willems scholarships.

 

In FY 2003, over two thousand (2,000) students requested NAACP Scholarship information. Of the students who requested information, the NAACP received two hundred twenty-eight (228) completed applications, of which sixty-two (62) were awarded. These scholarships are representative of the Associations commitment to ensuring that all Americans have the opportunity to pursue their educational goals.
