Check out this post for an update on the scholarship. The deadline for this year’s scholarship is December 1, 2016. Next semesters scholarship submissions will be accepted starting December 2, 2016. Good luck!
At EmpireBBK, we value education and those in need. School is expensive and it can be extremely difficult for families to make ends meet. The current state of our economy is forcing institutions to limit their generosity in scholarships, so the average student takes on more debt than the generation before.
- In order to apply, applicants must submit a 400+ word essay on the following topic:
- How has the Empire TV show contributed to today’s society? Analyze a painting by Kehinde Wiley and explain its significance. Finally, what will you do to improve the African American art community?
- The essay must be typed and include a bibliography.
- Out of the pool of applicants, we will select five finalists. We will then post the five finalists’ essays on the site.
- The essay can be sent via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Deadline for entries: The last day of September, the scholarship is offered once a year
