Apply now for ALG’s Education Scholarship Program!

The African Leadership Group  is pleased to announce its second annual Education Scholarship Program. The program will assist deserving low-income youth who are graduating high school seniors in their quest for higher education.

Scholarships are made possible by a generous grant from Pacific Western Bank.

Since its inception  the African Leadership Group (ALG) has been dedicated to helping youth succeed in the educational arena. The belief that “every child can and will learn with the proper educational resources” echoes throughout the organization’s work. 

ALG’s mission is to help the African diaspora integrate and prosper by connecting cultures, developing strong community leaders, and advocating for economic, social and educational impact. The Education Scholarship Fund Program will help the organization meet that mission.

Aims – The purpose of the African Leadership Group Education Scholarship Fund is to provide scholarships to deserving high school graduating seniors intending to pursue a course of study at either a vocational (two-year) or four-year educational institution. 

Scholarship Award Amount – The total distribution for the 2021-2022 academic year will be determined based on the Scholarship Committee’s evaluation of the applications submitted. Individual awards will range from $2,000 to $4,500.

Use of Scholarships – Payment will go directly to the institution. Scholarship funds  may be applied toward tuition, fees, field camp, or other costs directly related to undergraduate study. 

Eligibility – Provided that the applicant meets our financial eligibility, ALG will consider applications from any student preparing to attend an academic institution or a technical training program, as long as successful completion of the program yields a degree or industry recognized workforce credential. 

Basis of Award – The Scholarship Committee will make the final selection of recipients based on its review of the application form, the essay, and two letters of recommendations. The letters of recommendations must come from non-family members who are familiar with the student’s high school experience. These can be teachers, administrators, counselors, employers, or others with significant knowledge of academic performance, school participation, and community involvement. 

The scholarships will be awarded primarily on the basis of financial need and academic qualifications; career goals, projects/accomplishments/educational plans, and the recommendation letters will also be considered. 

How To Apply –  The application will be available on our website through June 10 2022
