2023 ELC Graduate Scholarship

Protecting Black Voices Scholarship


The Protecting Black Voices Scholarship was created to support students committed to civic responsibility and community engagement. This scholarship is awarded to high-achieving undergraduate and graduate Black students enrolled in an accredited four-year college pursuing a degree in history, political science, communications, media, journalism or related majors. 

Scholarship awardees will receive a two-year, need-based scholarship in the amount of $10,000 per year to assist with educational expenses for the upcoming academic year(s). The scholarship will be paid directly to the awardees’ college or university and will be disbursed in equal amounts for the fall and spring semesters. Scholars will be required to resubmit their transcripts and meet the GPA criteria at the end of the academic year to renew the award for the subsequent academic year(s), if applicable.
