The Application for the 2023-2024 academic year is now open! This year, we will be awarding 3 scholarships in the amount of $2,500 to three high school seniors from Manchester, NH.
About the Scholarship
While more Black students are attending college, educational inequalities are consistently affecting Black communities. On average, Black students graduate with significantly more debt than their white peers. The Black Lives Matter Manchester Achievement Scholarship was created to help support these students by relieving some of the financial burden associated with seeking higher education.
Thank you to Summits in Solidarity for sponsoring this year's scholarship! Learn more about SIS and their mission here: https://www.summitsinsolidarity.org
Despite facing adversity, these students demonstrated leadership, diligence, and courage throughout their schooling. We are proud to support them in their journey through higher education.
