Greetings Greater Friendship,

Nurturing the next generation of activists and community leaders includes investing in their education.

We know many students need funding to support their college education. NAACP has partnered with various businesses, including Dark & Lovely, Kering, and Vans, to provide undergraduate and graduate scholarships to college-bound students.

 

More than $800,000 is available across 10 grant programs for students who apply by June 18. We’re looking for exceptional students ready to make an impact in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), marketing, communications, the arts, and more.

Applicants must:
  • Be a member of the NAACP. If you are not a member of the NAACP, join today.
  • Be African American or a person of color.
  • Be currently enrolled full-time or accepted to an accredited college or university in the U.S.
  • Be a graduating high school senior, undergraduate student, or graduate student.
  • Possess a grade point average of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 system.
  • Demonstrate interest in a relevant field of study where applicable.

We know the expenses and debt accumulated during college can make it harder for Black graduates to securely step into their future. Let’s ensure equity in educational opportunity and prepare students for success in school, work, and life.

COVID-19 Community Corps - May 13, 2021
Community Corps members, 
 
Good news: the Pfizer vaccine is now available for adolescents 12 through 15 years of age – a big next step in our mission to get America vaccinated and keep us protected. 

Teenagers over the past year have missed school, sports, prom, concerts, seeing family, hanging out with friends, the list goes on. And parents have seen the toll this pandemic has taken on their kids, missing out on so much of the life of being a teenager. 

Everyday, more and more people across the country are rolling up their sleeves to get the vaccine to bring us back to normal and end the pandemic. Now, it’s time for nearly 17 million teens and young adults to get their turn. 


Pass it on: Parents who wants to protect their child, now you can. Find a COVID-19 vaccine near you at vaccines.gov or by texting your zip code to 438829. 

It’s normal to have questions, and as members of the COVID-19 Community Corps, YOU are the leaders that we need to make sure your communities have the answers. Here are tools to use as you connect with patients, parents, neighbors, or even on Facebook: 
As always, if you’re hearing other questions or concerns in your community about vaccines, visit our resources page or email us at COVIDCommunityCorps@hhs.gov.  

Thanks for all you do. 

The HHS COVID-19 Community Corps Team
