Description

Open Date: February 1, 2019 Close Date: March 31, 2019 Seeing an educational need in their congressional districts, the CBC Spouses Education Scholarship was established in 1988 by the spouses of Congressional Black Caucus members in response to federal cuts in spending for education programs and scholarships, which disproportionately affect people of color. This opportunity awards scholarships to academically talented and highly motivated African-American or Black students pursuing an associates, undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degrees in Political Science, Public Policy, Public-Administration, International Relations, Public Affairs, Mass communications, African-American Studies, Legislative Affairs, Pre-Law, Criminal Justice, American History and/or Juris Doctor. Selected applicants will be constituents of a CBC member's district. To determine your Representative, enter your permanent address zip code here. Qualified applicants must be currently enrolled full-time in an accredited academic institution, and have a minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
