Jerk X Jollof Scholarship

Two Scholarships - Nonrenewable

CLOSED

$500 Award

The Jerk & Jollof Scholarship aims to increase African American representation in higher education, especially students entering fields related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics (STEAM). African Americans are highly underrepresented in the STEAM fields; this lack of representation further exacerbates existing disparities in minority communities. Individuals within the STEAM field often have the ability to influence politics on local and national levels—political representation is important for strengthening infrastructure within minority communities.
