Havard Scholarships and Free Tuition

June 14, 2007 § 3 Comments

I am an advocate of education, especially among the underserved communities of the United States, as you may have read in articles like Character Building in American Schools. Therefore, I am going to make it a point – on this blog – to be a resource for people, helping to increase awareness concerning opportunities of education – religious and otherwise – wherever I may find them.

However, there is one dilemma. I have reason to believe that the majority of this blogs readers are not from communities where education and the means to acquire education is among the underserved population of the US. Therefore, I am asking you, the readers, to seek out any opportunity to share what you may gain in knowledge concerning opportunities in education from these articles with those who may not otherwise find these opportunities themselves. And perhaps we may change the state of a miserable condition that exists in this country, a condition that should not exist with the many resources within this country.

Years ago a Harvard graduate Dr. Kathie Rones, Executive Medical Director of Kings County Hospital Center in Brooklyn, New York, brought to my attention a fact that is not well known in poor communities. That fact is that Harvard University has a well developed tuition assistance program that can provide academically worthy students an opportunity to attend Harvard as suggested by Harvard College President L.H. Summers,

“Our doors have long been open to talented students regardless of financial need but many students simply do not know or believe this. We are determined to change both the perception and the reality.”

Harvard has been developing This program since 2004 and still exists today, it is called, the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative.

In addition, Tariq Nelson has posted an article on a program called, Call Me Mister, targeting African American males. This program is an effort to increase the number of African American male teachers and professors in this country. Something I think is a real item showing an unfortunate reality with disproportionate numbers as evidence. Please give us feedback if any of your efforts result in admissions due to these articles.
