CBC Spouses Education Scholarship

The CBC Spouses Education scholarship was established in 1988 in response to federal cuts in spending for education programs and scholarships. The need for college assistance remains critical as options for receiving financial support are becoming more limited. Since its inception, the Education Scholarship Fund has experienced substantial growth. The CBC Spouses Education Scholarship is a national program that awards scholarships to academically talented and highly motivated students who intend to pursue or are already pursuing full-time undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degrees. Recipients for this program are selected through volunteers in the district offices of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). The District Agent works with the CBC Member or CBC Spouse and local scholarship committees.

Deadline: Online application form with all supplemental materials must be uploaded, submitted, and received by 5:00 p.m. EDT June 5, 2015. Supporting materials (transcripts, proof of acceptance) must be received by 5:00 p.m. EDT June 5, 2015.
