Support the Black Alumni Network Scholarship Fund

The beauty of helping students through a scholarship is that your gift will benefit students where they most need help. A scholarship can immediately impact students, giving them a chance, or a second chance, to pursue their education. And the efforts of that gift -- investing in our future leaders -- lasts a lifetime. The Black Alumni Network Scholarship fund was established in October 2019 by the JU Black Alumni Network volunteers.
