Scholarship Deadline Extended to April 15, 2019
The 100 Black Men of Stamford launched its college scholarship program in 2002. Our scholarship program has two goals: motivating and recognizing academic achievement by high school and college African American males, and providing recipients with financial assistance for those with the greatest need. Annually, 100 BMOS awards a minimum of four (4) scholarships in the amount of $2,500 per scholarship. The program targets high school seniors matriculating into a four-year degree program.
● 100 BMOS has awarded over 60 scholarships totaling $150,000 to talented minority high school seniors entering their first year of post-secondary studies. These students hail from public and private high schools based in Fairfield County.
● Recipients have successfully matriculated into prominent colleges and universities such as Amherst College, Gordon College, Hampton University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sacred Heart University, Spelman College, Syracuse University, Temple University, University of Connecticut.
● Awardees continue to excel beyond the classroom by ascending to campus leadership positions, earning competitive internships and assisting the chapter with its mission through volunteer opportunities.
In light of the ever-increasing cost of college, 100 BMOS seeks to sustain its support of high performing students beyond the freshman year. Additionally, we will expand our reach to deserving community college and non-traditional students to provide career readiness in the competitive global economy.
