SCHOLLY AND THE SHABAZZ CENTER WILL BE AWARDING THREE STUDENTS $10,000 SCHOLARSHIPS
My father, Malcolm X, once said that “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today, “ Shabazz said. “The opportunity to support young developing leaders and change-makers through the Scholly Scholarship in partnership with The Shabazz Center is such a rewarding investment that equally honors the lasting legacy of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty ShabazzIliyasah Shabazz
To celebrate Malcolm X’s birthday and his wife Dr. Betty Shabazz the Shabazz Center and Scholly App are partnering to give three scholarships to students. Iliyasah Shabazz wanted to celebrate her parents’ commitment to education and empowerment of color with a way to give students money towards following their education aspirations. In the process to qualify for consideration of the scholarship students must complete the application which includes an essay and they will be considered to receive one of three $10,000 scholarships. The Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Legacy Scholarship application can be found at myscholly.com/malcomx starting May 19th and the three winning recipients will be announced in August.
Malcolm X and his wife Betty Shabazz are icons of the civil rights movement so the Scholly team is excited to be a part of this program to help empower even more students. Also to announce such a program on Malcolm X’s birthday is a great way to honor his legacy.CHRISTOPHER GRAY, CEO SCHOLLY
Every year, thousands of graduates leave colleges and universities with millions in student debt, making it harder to begin a family, start a small business, or buy a house. Since 2015, Scholly has helped students of all ages earn more than $100 million in scholarships.
