NAACP Scholarship Opportunities
Each year the NAACP, through generous donations, is able to provide scholarships to outstanding students. It is the duty of our dedicated Scholarship Committee to determine the most outstanding individuals to receive these awards. The NAACP does not provide financial aid to individuals, only scholarships through this process.
The application process for the 2011-2012 school year is closed. But you can view information about each scholarship today, including the requirements for next year's application here.
The process will be entirely online through our partnership with UNCF and we will inform you via email when the scholarships for 2012-2013 application process begins.NOTE: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the 2012-2013 scholarship application process has been delayed. We are actively working to correct the problem and anticipate a resolution soon. Please check our servicer’s website by searching for “NAACP” through the link above for the most up-to-date information.
