Welcome to our Black My Business Scholarships Program. With many generous donations from our #10ForChangeChallenge Crowdfunding Campaign we can effectively empower and assist thousands of disadvantaged African Americans over the next few years by providing valuable learning and employment pathways through our Black Scholarships Program.
The Black My Business Scholarships Program offers an opportunity to invest in this generation and future generations of African-Americans, who are poised and ready to become leaders in Business and Technology….in our community and throughout our nation.
We will offer 1000+ African-American Scholarships for the 2021, as part of our 3 Year Plan to help create over 10,000 Scholarships. We believe that the Black My Business Scholarships Program will enable tens of thousands of African American Students to undertake an Academic Qualification, due to their financial situation, or life circumstances. Initially, we will offer Digital Marketing Specialist Courses due to its high demand from Employers, however we will add a range of Learning Pathways relevant to other 'In-Demand' Career Options in a post Covid-19 Business Environment.
From advanced-degree holders to high-school dropouts, Black workers have substantially higher unemployment rates at every level of educational attainment than white workers—and the disparity has widened this year during the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic and related shutdowns.
The expanding gap signals Black Americans can expect to have a longer and slower recovery from the 2020 economic recession, regardless of whether they have attended college or not completed high school(Source - Disparity in Jobless Rates Suggests Black Workers Face Slower Recovery in the Wall Street Journal by Eric Morath November 29, 2020).
That's why action is needed action is needed NOW to begin to close the Education, Employment and Economic Gaps, while truly EMPOWERING highly disadvantaged African-Americans!
Covid-19 will change the way that we do business, the way we work and the way we study forever. Employers are realizing the need to have more flexible working conditions, while a new generation of people working for themselves or wanting to start their own Online Business will emerge. Simultaneously, the prohibitive costs and lack of flexibility in Traditional Colleges and Universities is making Online Learning, a far more attractive and viable option.
Here are a few reasons why our Black My Business Digital Marketing Scholarships ticks the boxes for so many looking to study during Covid-19 and beyond that in a post Covid-19 environment:
We would like to invite any African-American over the age of 18 to apply for one of these 1000 Full-ride Scholarship positions. We will offer preference to applicants who are financially disadvantaged or have a life circumstance that would make a traditional College Scholarship harder to obtain.
"If you do happen to get a scholarship or get a few offers, don't choose the school that is the biggest school. Choose the one that's right for you. Go somewhere you're needed, not where you're wanted."
