A Different Type of Scholarship Fund

Black Skeptics is announcing the creation of the “First in the Family” scholarship fund beginning this school year:

$200-$500 scholarships will be awarded in June 2013 to up to ten South Los Angeles high school students of color in the Los Angeles Unified School District who will be the first in their immediate family to go to college. BS will seek matching funds from community based and partner organizations in the humanist, social justice and LGBTQ community.

The eligibility requirements are on their website. It’s a wonderful cause and another example of Humanism in action.
