receiving this scholarship will help you continue your education.


To guide you  in completing the Personal Statement, here are some examples of how to get

started. Please keep in mind that the expectation is not that you write a detailed essay.

Just think about the question and answer in a concise manner




  • My desire is to obtain more information that will help me and my child(ren) to gain more access to Afrikan Centered Curriculum and educational material. Receiving this scholarship will bring us one step closer to meeting our educational needs.

  • I hope to have my own business one day and this scholarship will help me to connect with online classes that are designed for Afrikan business and economic planning.

  • In this difficult economy it has not been easy to pay for the type of classes and books that would help my family with their home-school work. This scholarship will help us to register in some classes and lessen the load of financial responsibility.


You are not graded on the length of your comments, but this is a way for the Management Team to learn something about your educational and family goals.
