Beginning college can be a difficult transition as one’s environment, location, and responsibilities all change.

College can often be an isolating experience for students of color, especially Black or African American students. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are known for providing resources and opportunities for African American students and a more diverse student body than predominantly white institutions. 

This scholarship seeks to honor the lives of Dr. Dumas A. Harshaw, Jr. and Mrs. Sharon Harshaw by supporting African American students in the Wake County Public School System.

Any African American high school senior at a Wake County Public High School who has at least a 2.5 GPA and will attend an HBCU may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about yourself, what you hope to accomplish in the future, and who/what inspired you to attend an HBCU.
