    AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE NOT APPLYING
    Even if you do not have a
    college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does, pass
    this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind.
    Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated
    moneys for scholarship use to African Americans, a great deal of the money
    is being returned because of a lack of interest.
    No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship.Take the initiative to get your children involved. There is no need for
    money to be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for
    it.
    Please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews,
    friends with children etc. We must get the word out that money is
    available. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one,
    you probably already know how useful additional money can be. Our youth
    really could use these scholarships. Thanks!! * (If clicking on the link

    All of it SEEMS to LOOK PROMISING except that RHODES SCHOLARSHIP.

    Cecil Rhodes is NOT A PERSON anybody WHO KNOW HIS DEEDS want to ASSOCIATE with. Dont worry you wont even LEARN ABOUT HIM in COLLEGE EITHER MOST LIKELY.

    SCHOLARSHIPS are for a STABLE MINORITY of OUR PEOPLE. Not a GREAT DEAL of our PEOPLE FINISH COLLEGE in a TIMELY FASHION.

    I rather ADVOCATE JOB PLACEMENT then SCHOLARSHIPS for OUR PEOPLE.

    And COLLEGES arent even doing that EITHER these DAYS.

    Four Blacks Named Rhodes Scholars for Next Year
    Date: Wednesday, November 25, 2009, 4:39 am
    By: F. Finley McRae, Special to BlackAmericaWeb.com

    [​IMG]
    Ugwechi Amadi, a senior at MIT, is among the four blacks selected to be Rhodes Scholars in 2010.

    For the second year since 1994, four African-American undergraduates have won Rhodes Scholarships, which carry with them the privilege of studying at Oxford, England's oldest and most venerated university....

    ...Two of the four blacks are men, and two are women. They are Andre McCall from Truman State University, Ugwechi Amadi, an MIT senior, and two Harvard College undergraduates, Darryl Finkton and Jean Junior...

    ....Along with blacks from this country, Africans from South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia and Swaziland were selected. Jamaicans and Caribbean were also chosen as well. Other scholarship winners of color will represent India, Germany, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

    For most of the past 46 years, American blacks have won at least one Rhodes. Two African American seniors were chosen in 1963 - John Edgar Wideman, a University of Pennsylvania student, and J. Stanley Sanders, from Whittier College, near Los Angeles....

    ...In 1907, Alain Locke, the intellectual wizard known as the father of the Harlem Renaissance, was the first African-American awarded a Rhodes Scholarship. That ignited a threatened boycott by the white, southern winners, who claimed they'd refuse their scholarships if Locke's were not rescinded. Rhodes officials were not intimidated and said Locke's selection would not be withdrawn. The southerners dropped their threat, but never spoke to Locke during his two years at Oxford.

    No blacks were welcomed into the Rhodes circle of winners for more than a half century - 56 years - until Wideman and Sanders were elected in 1963.
