We are thrilled to invite you to join us as we announce the recipients of the 2020 Dr. Doretha Pressey Scholarship during an exciting live virtual event on August 1st, 2020 at 1PM Eastern Time.

This year, we will be awarding $30,000 in scholarship funds to two exceptional students. We would not have been able to help make the dream of college a reality for these incredibly deserving young people without your support and generosity, so we sincerely hope you will join us for this brief but truly inspiring celebration.

In addition to meeting our 2020 Scholars, during this half hour Zoom event you will also have the opportunity to:

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the impact we are making in lives of young people of color in the rural South from our 2019 Scholars and representatives from our partner schools,
  • Meet members of the Southern Scholars Team, Board of Directors, and some of our most supportive donors and sponsors, and
  • Learn more about Southern Scholars’ mission, history, and plans for the future
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENT NOW!

If you will not be able to attend, but you are interested in supporting our work, please use the links on this page to make a donation.

We are so grateful to you for helping us use the power of education to fight against racial injustice and to change our Scholars' lives.

We can’t wait to see you on August 1st!
