Talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.
Inequality of opportunity is pronounced in the Black community in everything from access to quality education, to safety from police brutality, to career progression, and much more.
Education is one of the most powerful determinants of access to opportunity.
In an effort to build a more equitable country, the Mechanism Ventures team is funding 15 grants for Black students and recent graduates across a wide variety of fields where opportunity is not equal.
This scholarship will be awarded to a Black student who excels at dreaming big and starting small while building their vision for the future. Strong candidates will be extremely ambitious, driven, and talented.
Students across any field of study or education level are eligible to apply.
This scholarship is part of the Mechanism Ventures Impact Grants Series.
