The Malcolm Frierson Foundation was founded in 2006 as a non-profit public charity. Its mission is to promote the social and intellectual development of African American youth. The Foundation highlights leadership, service, and awareness in its programming. We believe that small cadres of youth committed to these principles can lift their communities to new heights.
The Marcus Garvey Scholarship Program honors the Jamaican-born activist and organizer who served as the voice of uplift for millions of African descendants worldwide in the early twentieth century. Outstanding students who share Garvey’s spirit of leadership, service, and consciousness are invited to apply for the $1,000 annual award. Applications are available in late spring.
Congratulations to Danielle J. at Spelman College, recipient of the 2019-2020 Marcus Garvey Scholarship award!
