Nicholson Chapter of Grambling State University National Alumni presents an Educational Scholarship Award to an upper classman within the Dallas Metroplex.  Eligible students must major in one of the following: College of Business, Criminal Justice, Mass Communication, or STEM, demonstrate, leadership skills, and participate in community service activities.  Additionally, applicants are judged on their completion of a two-page essay based on one of the confronting issues in our society below.

  1. What are solutions to minimize the college dropout rate?
  2. Write an editorial to your mayor complaining about problems in your city.
  3. Why do you think HBCUs are relevant and what vital role do HBCUs play in our society?

We invite you to apply for our Educational Scholarship Award.  Enclosed you will find a scholarship application and detailed information outlining the process for completing the application. The deadline for submission of all information is July 15, 2022.  We hope you will consider this scholarship opportunity as you attend Grambling State University.
