Black Entrepreneurs of Philadelphia Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,800
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: May 31, 2021

From small businesses to venture-scale companies, entrepreneurship is an impactful and enduring way to move communities forward, but the funded entrepreneurs in the US do not reflect the diversity of our country.

Although African Americans make up 13% of the U.S. population, just 1% of start-ups receiving venture funding have Black founders.

The Black Entrepreneurs of Philadelphia Scholarship exists to help create more equal opportunities for Black entrepreneurs in the Philadelphia community.

The scholarship is open to students in any field of study. To apply, you must be a current or aspiring Black entrepreneur who is currently located in or around the Philadelphia area.

In addition to the scholarship award, the winner of the scholarship will also have the opportunity to learn directly from Jordan DiPietro, the creator of the scholarship and an experienced entrepreneur. This 1-year mentorship could include face-to-face meetings, zoom calls, and the potential to hone in, craft, and get direct feedback on your business plans.
