The Grand Rapids Community Foundation’s Black Men Building Resources Scholarship is awarded to students who are African-American male or females, with demonstrated financial need, residing in Kent County, and who has graduated or received their GED from a Grand Rapids area high school. Scholarship recipients are selected by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation (GRCF) and applicants follow the GRCF process.
By connecting people, their passions and our region’s resources, Grand Rapids Community Foundation and our partners work toward an inclusive and equitable West Michigan. Over the last century, the Community Foundation has used the tools of philanthropy to respond to community needs. Today, to carry out our North Star and overcome racial, social and economic inequities, we must respond with intention and care. Our partners inspire, motivate and guide our work.
