If you know any minority (African-American, Hispanic) seniors in high school who have excelled in academics, leadership and service, please encourage them to apply for the Jackie Robinson Foundation scholarship award (4-year scholarship up to $7,500 per year to attend a four–year college or university of their choice.).

Deadline to submit the application is February 15, 2015 by 5:00 pm ET.

Each student selected for a scholarship receives financial grants,internships, along with job placement, mentoring and leadership development services. Scholars also take part in mandatory community service projects. Corporate sponsors include Unilever, Nike, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Ernst & Young, Major League Baseball among several others.

See e-mail below for more details. As a member of the JRF Alumni Foundation, I'm also happy to help answer any questions.
