The Marcus Garvey Scholarship Program honors the Jamaican-born activist and organizer who served as the voice of uplift for millions of African descendants worldwide in the early twentieth century.

B) have a high-school GPA of 3.0 or above

C) show evidence of leadership and service in an essay submission

D) be a first-time college student in Fall 2018 at an accredited U.S. college or university

The Marcus Garvey Scholarship recipient will receive an award of $1,000. The first disbursement in the amount of $500 will be made in September, and a subsequent disbursement in the amount of $500 will be issued in January provided the awardee earns a GPA of 2.75 or higher in the Fall 2018 semester. The award is non-renewable.

Family members of Malcolm Frierson are not eligible to apply. Applications will be blindly reviewed by a selection committee to determine the recipient. The $1,000 award should be used toward college-related expenses.
