The Featherstone Foundation is pleased to announce the inaugural Featherstone HBCU College Scholarship.
The Featherstone HBCU College Scholarship, powered by State Farm, creates opportunities for high-performing students to tap much-needed funding so that attending a four-year, Historically Black College and University (HBCU) can be attainable.
This scholarship aims to eliminate financial barriers to higher education and provide underserved communities with access to additional funding. This special award encourages first-generation college students, from economically challenged backgrounds, to pursue higher education and help level the playing field for inner city students.
