About the fund
The Girl Friends Fund, Inc. (“The Fund”) brings dreams to life by providing scholarships and mentoring to high-achieving, African-American students who face significant financial obstacles in their path toward a college education.
We recognize the limits of financial aid, as a result, the goal of our scholarship program is to offset expenses associated with tuition, books, housing and necessary college related expenses. Monetary awards are presented each Spring to a select group of graduating high school seniors, nominated by chapters of The Girl Friends®, Inc, who plan to attend an accredited four-year institution. The designated award is renewable for up to four years, provided the student continues to satisfy eligibility requirements.
