Featherstone HBCU Scholarships at Morgan State University

Access to higher education is a powerful driver that creates opportunities for underrepresented communities to achieve economic stability. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation expanded its programs supporting first-generation students to achieve higher education with college scholarships, tackling unemployment and underemployment through paid internships and our innovative workforce program that places participants in meaningful careers.

Access to higher education is paramount in transforming the lives of individuals and communities. However, the financial burden to receive an advanced degree has proven challenging for some. The Featherstone Foundation works to mitigate the economical strain and achieve Academic Equity in Higher Education for underserved and traditionally underrepresented students through scholarships.

The Featherstone HBCU College Scholarships create opportunities for high-performing students to tap much-needed funding so that attending a four-year, Historically Black College and University (HBCU) can be more attainable.

In 2023, six students will receive Featherstone HBCU Scholarships ($3,000 each). We will celebrate this year’s honorees during the Featherstone Awards Ceremony on August 11, 2023.

The Featherstone Scholarships track record:

    • More than $311,000 awarded 
    • 128 scholarships 
    • to students from 20 countries
    • attending  12 institutions
