Marcus Garvey Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by Malcolm Frierson Foundation

Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

The Malcolm Frierson Foundation was founded in 2006 as a non-profit public charity. Its mission is to promote the academic success of Black youth. The Foundation highlights leadership, service, and appreciation of Black life and culture.

The Marcus Garvey Scholarship Program honors the late Jamaican-born activist and organizer who served as the voice of uplift for millions of African descendants worldwide in the early twentieth century. Outstanding students who share Garvey’s spirit of leadership, service, and appreciation of Black life and culture are invited to apply for a one-time $1,000 award.

Applicants to the Marcus Garvey Scholarship Program must:

  • identify as a person of African descent (African American, Caribbean, Afro-Latinx, etc.)
  • have a high-school GPA of 3.0 or above
  • be a first-time college student in Fall 2023 at an accredited U.S. college or university (Students with prior dual-credit hours are not eligible)
  • provide proof of enrollment (if selected)
  • provide a digital headshot (if selected)

The Marcus Garvey Scholarship recipient will receive an award of $1,000. The first disbursement in the amount of $500 will be made in September, and a subsequent disbursement in the amount of $500 will be issued in January provided the awardee earns a GPA of 2.75 or higher in the Fall 2023 Semester/Quarter. The scholarship is non-renewable. 

Family members of Malcolm Frierson are not eligible to apply. Applications will be blindly reviewed by a selection committee. The award should be used toward college-related expenses.
