Featherstone College Scholarships

Access to higher education is a powerful driver that creates opportunities for underrepresented communities to achieve economic stability. 

In 2016, we created the Featherstone College Scholarship Program at the University of Baltimore to promote higher education and to empower the next generation of student leaders.

In 2021, ten selected students will receive $2,000 merit-based awards to attend the University of Baltimore. The innovative scholarship fund works to help increase access to four-year institutions for underrepresented communities.  

The 2021 application is available here.
