Black Student Organization Pioneers of PSU Endowed Scholarship

The Donor wishes to honor African American students who pioneered the Black Student Organization by providing an endowed scholarship to deserving students in need of financial support. The recipients of this scholarship will be full-time undergraduate students who maintain a minimum of 2.25 GPA and complete an essay relating how their life has been impacted by lessons their elders or ancestors learned from experiences in the Jim Crow era, the slavocracy (the system of government in the southern United States in which slave labor was used to build the economy), or the Civil Rights Movement. Incoming freshmen as well as current students are eligible. The scholarship will be limited to North Carolina residents. There is no required major. Financial need will be considered. A recipient may reapply for the scholarship, but to be considered again must submit a new essay and improve their GPA by .25 (all reapplying students with a 3.25 or higher GPA will be considered regardless of the increase in GPA).
