Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — The deadline is very near for students who would like to apply for the Tom Joyner Foundation “Full Ride” Scholarship. The scholarship covers all the expenses of one student planning to attend a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in the fall of 2014.
“The cost of a college education isn’t getting any cheaper,” said Tom Joyner, chairman of his Foundation and host of the top-ranked nationally syndicated radio show. “So, I want to help a graduating high school senior with a chance to attend a black college to pursue their dreams.”
The winning student will receive full tuition and stipends for up to 10 semesters to cover on-campus room and board and books. Students must meet the required academic standards each semester to renew the funds each year. Graduating high school seniors can apply for the scholarship by going to the Tom Joyner Foundation website to download an application.
The applications must be postmarked no later than January 17th, 2014. Interviews will occur in April 2014.
