Loudoun NAACP offers college scholarships

The NAACP Loudoun Branch has announced scholarships opportunities for graduating Loudoun high school seniors from historically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The organization is offering four $1,000 scholarships that are available to students planning to attend a four-year college or community college for a two-year associate degree.

The application deadline is March 30, and students will be chosen on the basis of grades, an essay addressing one of four questions, one counselor recommendation and one teacher recommendation.

The Laughter—It’s not just “disadvantaged” backgrounds, it’s historically disadvantaged backgrounds. If it were me, I’d open up the competition to anybody who needs help. But it’s not me. It’s their money and they are free to spend it however they wish. Good for them and congrats to whomever wins and begins college with $1,000 less debt.

They do a lot positive, they keep the politicians and the public on their toes with regard to race related issues.  Now some don’t like it, but, that is too bad.  Keep on keeping on NAACP

Seems selective that they are only providing this to those with disadvantaged backgrounds.

Here is something positive the NAACP of Loudoun is doing
