The Urgency

Did you know that Black males have the lowest graduation rates among Black, Latino and White, non-Latino male and female students (source: The Urgency of Now). 

The Promising Scholars Fund works to reduce economic barriers to college education by providing scholarships to African American students. The goal is to provide scholarships for all four years, but more resources are required to make that dream a reality. 

How you can support an African American student's dream

There are multiple ways you can support African American students through the Promising Scholars Fund:

  1. Make an outright gift to the Fund (below) to support annual scholarships for students. 
  2. Create a lasting legacy of support by including The Promising Scholars Fund in your estate planning.
  3. Support the annual Golf Tournament. Download the brochure for sponsorship information or call Hiram Brett at 203-804-8949. 
  4. Tell your friends, family and colleagues about us.
