College Scholarship Program

The FCBA Foundation College Scholarship Program provides financial assistance and laptop computers to DC public high school students to assist them in attending college.

The Foundation committed $299,000 to its 2018 scholarship class with scholarships between $8,000 and $24,000 to graduating seniors who were selected because of their academic achievements and service to school and community.  The Foundation reviewed applications from high school students of diverse backgrounds with an interest in communications-related fields, including media, journalism, technology, engineering, or law.  Thirty-nine high school student applicants were interviewed and 26 of them were chosen to receive FCBA Foundation scholarship assistance funded over four years.  All 39 of the applicants who attended interviews were provided new laptop computers.  The scholarship recipients came from 10 local public high schools: Ballou, Benjamin Banneker, Columbia Heights Educational Campus (Bell Multicultural), Duke Ellington, Eastern, E.L. Haynes, McKinley Technology, School Without Walls, Washington Latin, and Woodrow Wilson.

Information on how to apply for the 2019 program will be available in December or January.
