Black students make up one-third of all college scholarship applications. Yet, we receive only about 28 percent of the benefits. Much of this can be attributed to systemic biases in those gifting funds. There are, however, some great scholarships just for us.
Microsoft gives up to $20,000 over four years to pay for an undergrad degree. The scholarship is given to high school seniors who will be majoring in engineering, computer science, computer information systems, finance, or business administration.
