Scholarship Program

The Brother Box Scholarship Program was created to help young Black men attend college and pursue their dreams. Each year we award as many $2,500 scholarships as we can to help make students’ transition to college a little bit easier.

Brother Box Scholarship

This year, Brother Box is excited to award four, $2,500 one-time college scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the state of Alabama.

Requirements

Brother Box Scholarships were created to help young Black men achieve their educational dreams in college. Our goal is to help create limitless opportunities for Black boys everywhere. To be considered for a Brother Box Scholarship, you must:

  • Be a senior at a high school in the state of Alabama on pace to graduate in Spring 2022
  • Identify as a Black or African-American male
  • Plan to attend a 2- or 4-year college or university full-time in the United States in Fall 2023
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Be a United States citizen

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply for the scholarship if I live outside of the state of Alabama?
No. Unfortunately at this time we only have the resources to provide this opportunity for those in Alabama. For context, this is where our founder grew up and graduated from high school. We are prioritizing this opportunity here first, and hope to expand this opportunity to all states in the future.

Is this scholarship available for current college students?
No, the scholarship award is only available for current high school seniors on track to graduate in Spring 2022 and starting their first year of college in Fall 2022.

Can I apply for this scholarship if I plan to attend a community college?
Absolutely! To us, college is college. If you’re taking steps to continue your educational journey and you meet the eligibility requirements listed above then we want you to apply.

What am I allowed to spend the scholarship award on?
The Brother Box Scholarship award must be spent on tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required for the students’ classes at their primary college or university.

Should I have taken part in another Brother Box program to be eligible for the scholarship?
Nope! The awards are open to all who meet the eligibility requirements stated above.

What if I have a question about the application?
You can contact us directly at taylor@brotherbox.org and we will help you sort things out.

Are there any other terms or things to be aware of?
Scholarship recipients must be enrolled in college as full-time students for the 2022-2023 academic year. Enrollment will be verified before the winners are awarded their scholarship funds, and all scholarship payments will be made directly to the student to be used towards tuition and education-related expenses. We will withhold the award for any scholar who no longer meets the eligibility requirements. Selected recipients will receive instructions from Brother Box on how to receive the award. Failure to complete these steps by the specified deadline will disqualify recipients from receiving the award.
