Teaching Scholarship/African-American Males Program Initiative

Two years ago, THE BLACK COLLEGIAN established the Teaching Scholarship Initiative because we saw the absence of positive Black male role models in the classroom as a serious problem in the Black community. This program awarded twenty $1000 scholarships to African-American male students who are majoring in elementary education. We invited twenty colleges and universities to join us as University Partners by matching our $1000 with a $1000 tuition scholarship.

Last year, in addition to continuing the Teaching Scholarship Initiative, we launched the African-American Males Program Initiative. In each issue of the publishing year we praised, profiled, and publicized the work of those programs around the country that are dedicated to "reclaiming the African-American male." We see these initiatives as the ripple to reverse the tide, to begin again to attract African-American males as mentors to and teachers of our youth. The University Partners are:
