This is a special post about African American Grants was written and researched by Jada who received several grants in order for her to pursue a BioChemistry undergraduate degree and is now pursuing an MBA. This list was created by her to help other African American students male/female find grants to attend university.

This article was years in the making, as I researched to attend school I kept an excel spreadsheet off all the grants I found, When I graduated and had to pay off a few of the student loans I had I found this site ( and thought it would be a great place for me to share my research with others. I really hope that the hours of research I have poured into this list over the years will help make the dream of higher education a reality for someone.


This amazing resource was created by Jada – Please thank her in the comments below!

There are many grants and scholarships for African Americans. Whether they are from a school, government or private company many organizations are looking to help African Americans attend college.

By attending university or college many students are able to improve their lifetime earnings and contribute substantioully more to society. By encouraging students to attend university the results are often that many students will become financially stable and be able to support their family.

Most African American grants are aimed at helping students who come from low income households and specifically target students who will be the first from their family to attend university.

The oldest organization that offers African American grants is the UNCF which was founded in 1944 to help break down the cultural barriers that were holding people back.
