Featherstone HBCU Scholarships at Morgan State University

Congratulations to the 2022 Featherstone HBCU winners at Morgan State University

The Featherstone HBCU College Scholarships at Morgan State University 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.

In 2022, the Featherstone Foundation five students will receive Featherstone HBCU Scholarships ($3,000 each). We will celebrate this year’s honorees during the Featherstone Awards Ceremony on Sept. 23. 

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.

To help support the many talented students in Baltimore City, this scholarship helps promote matriculation and student retention for those attending or seeking admission to HBCUs. Eligibility
