About the American Journey Awards 

Since 2010, Ronald H. Brown American Journey Awards have been granted to individuals who have developed opportunities for others to achieve success. Like the late Ron Brown, these role models demonstrate through their life experiences the importance of mentoring, service and the value of nurturing a network of leaders in America. 

Approximately 600 philanthropists, business leaders, civic leaders, and professionals will attend the ceremony to celebrate service, honor achievement and support the journeys of African-American young adults who have overcome personal obstacles and matriculated in our nation’s most elite universities. Many of the 465 Ron Brown Scholars take part in the event and share their stories.
