National Association for the Advancement of Colored People scholarships

From the ballot box to the classroom, the dedicated workers, organizers, and leaders who forged the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and maintain its status as a champion of social justice, fought long and hard to ensure that the voices of African Americans would be heard. For nearly one hundred years, it has been the talent and tenacity of NAACP members that has saved lives and changed many negative aspects of American society.
