Our mission is to further cultivate the pipeline of future African-American lobbyists, public policy professionals, and advocates. We do this by supporting undergraduate and graduate-level students who demonstrate the commitment, courage, and work ethic to be advocates throughout their academic and professional journey.

Students who are studying other disciplines may be eligible to receive financial assistance by indicating how you will use your education to be an advocate.
