Reach Media syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner and his Tom Joyner Foundation have announced the “Full Ride” scholarship program that will cover all the expenses of one student planning to attend a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in the fall of 2014. Students will receive full tuition and stipends for up to 10 semesters to cover on-campus room and board and books. Required academic standards must be met each semester to renew the funds each year.
“The cost of a college education isn’t getting any cheaper,” said Joyner. “So, I want to help a graduating high school senior with a chance to attend a black college to pursue their dreams.”
Past Full Ride scholars have include the first winner, Britney Wilson, a native of Brooklyn, NY, who graduated from Howard University last year. She is now in her first year of law school at the University of Pennsylvania. Graduating high school seniors can apply for the scholarship by going to the Tom Joyner Foundation website at www.tomjoynerfoundation.org to download an application.
