Hiiiii! On behalf of Bay Area Black Deaf Advocates (BABDA), I’m thrilled to announce our Black Deaf Student Scholarship Fund for 2021 graduating high school students is now open for applications!
BABDA will award five (5) scholarships of $1,000 (per award) to Class of 2021 graduating high school seniors, who are Deaf, hard-of-hearing, late-deafened, Deafblind, Deafdisabled and planning to attend post-secondary school at any college, university, or vocational technical training program. Most programs such as tuition, books, fees, supplies, etc. cost a lot more so students are encouraged to seek funding from other sources. Applications will be accepted from now until no later than FRIDAY, JUNE 11, 2021 by 11:59 pm PST. In order to apply, please review the guidelines carefully (details below). Recipients will be announced on Saturday, June 19, 2021 during our JUNETEENTH virtual celebration. Good luck! [END OF SCRIPT]
