The Ron Brown Scholarship honors the legacy of Ronald H. Brown through a selective scholarship program that advances higher education for community-minded and intellectually gifted African Americans.
RBSP competitively awards Ron Brown Scholars four-year $40,000 scholarships ($10,000 each year) to the most talented and economically-challenged high school seniors who demonstrate a keen interest in public service, community engagement, business entrepreneurship and global citizenship.
These form the four pillars of the late Ronald H. Brown’s mission to uplift people of all races, cultures and ethnicities – especially our disadvantaged youth.
The Ron Brown Scholar Fund is a 501(c)3 public charity, managed by an independent Board of Trustees.
The Program which was named for the late Secretary of Commerce and inspired by his dedication to public service, focuses on encouraging civic engagement among Scholars while promoting academic excellence, community and lifelong interactions.
Recipients are young African Americans of outstanding promise who are offered academic scholarships, service opportunities and leadership experiences.
Recipients may use the renewable scholarships to attend an accredited four-year college or university of their choice within the United States.
