Bennett College, the historically Black educational institution for women in Greensboro, North Carolina, has announced the establishment of the Illustrious Belle Award scholarship program. The scholarships will provide funds for tuition, fees, and room and board for first-year students. The scholarships are renewable for three additional years provided the students maintain a 3.75 grade point average.
All Illustrious Belle Scholars must live on campus. They will be required to perform 10 hours of community service each semester.
Eventually, the college hopes to give out 10 to 15 of these scholarships each year.
