HBCU Scholarship

At the Rainey Day Foundation, we believe that a student should be supported, nurtured, affirmed and reinforced. These are all important qualities of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. HBCU’s were established to increase the access to college education for African Americans, making those who attend feel empowered by legacy.

In our commitment to support students in pursuit of continuing the HBCU legacy, the Rainey Day Foundation will offer a scholarship ranging from $1,000 to $1,500. High school seniors accepted and planning to attend an HBCU and current college students are eligible to apply. 5 available.

Applications are being accepted until May 1, 2020.
