Our founding scholarship committee is a group of Black alums and former officers of the Bellaire African- American Association who are passionate about empowering our future leaders! In the summer of 2020, we, along with so many others, were deeply moved by the racial discord impacting the U.S. and felt the urgent need to take action in our own community. During this time, we created the first-ever Bellaire African-American Association Alumni scholarship specifically designed for Black graduating seniors at Bellaire High. Our scholarship fund was created thanks to the generous support of our gracious donors, who swiftly helped us raise over $15,000 in 20 days to give back to our Cardinal family. With only 97% of nationwide scholarship recipients receiving $2,500 or less in scholarships, we are dedicated to funding this scholarship on a continuous basis as a philanthropic legacy to make a direct impact on our leaders of tomorrow. We can’t thank you enough for considering our cause!
