ARETHA VINSON COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP

   
     

Youth Matter, Inc. and the family of the late Aretha Vinson care about the future of our youth.

  1. The purpose is:
  • To supplement college costs, from tuition to books to room and board.

There are lots of scholarship programs in existence; however, there are still many students who need financial support. The Aretha Vinson college scholarships go toward college education only. Donations are sort from individuals and corporations. An application criteria and a scholarship fund application form are required to apply. Part of the criteria requires a brief essay of which the Aretha Vinson family will determine the subject matter each year. A Scholarship Fund Committee reviews the applications and made the awards. The scholarships will be awarded at at Youth Matter Inc.'s Annual Black & White Gala Fundraiser of each year, normally held in October or November.

Please request Application form by e-mailing us with your information: Name, Address, Telephone number.
