Scholarship Details: Initiated by the Warren Wilson College Black Student Union, the Board of Trustees approved the creation of this scholarship from the general endowment in Fall 2020. This endowed fund was created in memory of George Floyd and the work racial justice organizers did in the wake of his murder. It recognizes students who are leading the charge to change our College—and greater community—to better meet our social justice mission.
Selection Procedure: Nominate yourself or a fellow student if you/they identify as Black, stand out in leadership abilities, and meaningfully contribute to racial justice work at WWC and beyond. Recipients of this scholarship shall be selected by committee. The selection process will take place each spring with the award/s to be disbursed the following fall semester.
