Rep. Johnson awards more than $8,000 in CBC scholarships
Congressman Hank Johnson and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) recently awarded $8,200 in scholarships to 12 deserving college students from Georgia’s Fourth District as a part of the CBC’s 2018 Spouses Education Scholarship program.
“This year’s winners have excelled in the classroom and in their communities through service and their academic talents,” said Congressman Johnson. “Each year, these scholarships address a financial need and give these outstanding students a little breathing room heading into a new semester of furthering their education.”
These scholarships will provide financial assistance for the 2018-2019 academic school year and is designed to support students of all majors who are preparing to pursue or are currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree, full-time, at a U.S. accredited college or university.
More than 35 high school and college students applied for scholarships; which require a minimum GPA of 2.5.
This program awards scholarships to talented, highly-motivated students of all majors. Scholarship amounts awarded to the winners ranged from $500 – $2,040. Congressman Johnson also plans to hold a reception to honor the scholarship recipients later this year.
The CBCF has awarded scholarships to talented and deserving students for nearly three decades. Each year, the Congressional Black Caucus awards more than 200 scholarships to students across the United States.
