It’s April 25, and the United Negro College Fund was founded on this date in 1944. Its goal then and now was to have funds available for African-American students to attend college and to make funds available for Historically Black Colleges and Universities to award their own scholarships to deserving students. This anniversary got us thinking about our own scholarships which will be awarded in early May. Much like the United Negro College Fund, we award scholarships and funds to deserving candidates. We want graduates of our high school diploma program to be able to attend college and not have it place a financial burden on their families. The anniversary is also a reminder that there are many scholarship opportunities out there for students who earn a correspondence high school diploma or online high school diploma from American School, so apply to as many of them as you can. Every bit helps, and every scholarship you earn decreases your total cost of attending college. Thank you for being our student and graduate, and keep checking this blog for details about our scholarship meeting which is scheduled for early May.
