AKA Provides Scholarships For George Floyd’s Family To Attend HBCUs

https://www.essence.com/news/alpha-k...eoRv4QXb4SyceE

Quote:
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority announced on Friday that the organization founded on the campus of Howard University by Black collegiate women will provide scholarships to the daughter and granddaughters of George Floyd to attend an HBCU of their choosing. The family was notified of the gift, by AKA International President Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover.

In a press release, Glover wrote, “Since our founding in 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha has endeavored to build a better world for African Americans by serving the community, advancing higher education, and fighting for social justice.” She added that she hopes the financial support for the young women will help “assist them on their path to success.”

And if they choose to attend a university that is not an HBCU?

I would assume that just like other scholarships which are specific to certain colleges, it would not apply.

This is a touching gesture by our SisterGreeks! One of AKA’s signature programs is “HBCU for Life: A Call to Action,” where they have been marketing, promoting and fundraising for those 101 universities. This offering makes sense and would go with one of their initiatives. The AKA’s International President, Dr. Glenda Glover, is also the President of Tennessee State University, an HBCU in Nashville.

No matter what those little girls decide to do, they will absolutely be supported! We got them!
