African American Students

Every year, millions of students complete and receive undergraduate, however, African American students graduate at a significantly lower rate than the majority of their peers. While there are many factors that contribute to this graduation rate, one of the biggest roadblocks that African American students face when receiving an education is a lack of financial support.

Maryville University Online has created a guide to give an overview of different types of aid and scholarship options available to African American students. This guide includes Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) scholarships, general grants and scholarships for African American students, field specific scholarships, and more. You can find this guide here.
