Opportunities for High Potential Youth

Too few qualified black men make up the applicant pools for college admissions. Among those, too few pursue the most rigorous academic disciplines. We must identify, support and direct investments to help increase the number of young black men in the pipeline to higher education and professional endeavors.

“This directory of programs and scholarships for high achievers has been compiled as a result of The Pipeline Crisis/Winning Strategies initiative which “seeks to pool the talents, knowledge and resources of the legal, financial, business and human services communities to help reverse the rising rates of school drop-outs, joblessness and incarceration among young black men, and to increase their representation in the pipeline to higher education.”
