The 5 Strong Scholarship Foundation, Inc. partners with Historically Black Colleges and Universities to provide full tuition scholarships and ongoing mentorship and support to promising scholars from "Matriculation to Graduation." 5 Strong's mission is to help increase the retention and graduation rates at HBCUs. Our first cohort of 5 Strong Scholars will be enrolling at our partnering HBCUs (Langston U., Alabama A&M U., U. of Arkansas Pine Bluff, & Bethune Cookman U.) this fall 2016. They are currently attending 5 Strong's Bi-Monthly College Prep Sessions. Our scholars are from the Metropolitan Atlanta area and several of them will be 1st Generation College graduates. 5 Strong is raising money to fund 4 college visits (vans, meals, gas, lodging) and our 1st Annual Awards Banquet (meals, location, supplies, decorations, etc.). 5 Strong will also use money to fund the Bi-Monthly College Prep Sessions (supplies, location, etc.) This is our 1st Cohort of 5 Strong Scholars and they will be setting the standard for hundreds of 5 Strong Scholars that will be following in their path. 5 Strong really wants to make the first year a special year for a special group of inaugural scholars that we know will make us proud by being leaders on campus and in the classroom. With your help we can really show the 2016 5 Strong Scholars how special they really are! Thanks for your support!
