TheFCAC Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to African-American, District of Columbia high school (public, private, or charter) students in the pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. In addition to supporting students, the program also supports Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and minority scholarship programs at majority institutions, nationally and in the Washington, DC area.
The program consists of scholarship awards for books and the following two (2) scholarships that are awarded on the basis of academic excellence, leadership, and community service:
- The HBCU Academic Excellence Scholarship will be awarded to at least two (2) African- American, District of Columbia high school students, who are also District of Columbia residents, entering any accredited HBCU as a full-time student in the upcoming academic year.
- The Academic Excellence (non-HBCU) Scholarship will be awarded to at least two (2) African-American, District of Columbia high school students, who are also District of Columbia residents, entering any accredited college or university as a full-time student in the upcoming academic year.
Scholarship award decisions of TheFCAC are final. Payment of all TheFCAC Scholarship awards will be directed to the college or university on behalf of the award recipient upon verification of enrollment as a full-time student. Funds are forwarded as a one-time award, payable in full, to be applied toward tuition, room and board, fees, and books only. Funds will not be directed in any other manner.
TheFCAC reserves the right to adjust the scholarship award of any recipient who has received full payment of tuition, room, board, and fees from other scholarships or grants.
