The Malcolm X Scholarship for "Exceptional Courage" is directed towards undergraduate students, who are enrolled at one of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) institutions. The scholarship was developed by award-winning filmmaker Spike Lee to increase the awareness about the life and contributions of Malcolm X within society.
The program will provide scholarship support for students, who have overcome difficult circumstances or challenges in pursuit of their college education. Students can be enrolled in any accredited field of study at their chosen UNCF institution.
Spike Lee was also able to garner support for this scholarship program from Allen Killil, Abkeo Music and Records and other major contributors.
Candidates must have a minimum GPA of 2.5, and will be required to submit the following documents: online application, resume, transcript, essays, and academic recommendations.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in SEPTEMBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $4,000.
