Black ScholarsThe Black Scholars program provides recognition, assistance and incentives to students who achieve and maintain a "B" or better average throughout high school. The program identifies Black Scholars from school districts in Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, and Wayne counties. Workshops are held every fall and spring to prepare college bound students and their parents for college selection, admissions testing and applications, financial aid and college survival. The highlight of the program is the annual Black Scholars dinner held each June where each Black Scholar is publicly recognized and over $2.5 million in scholarships is presented.
