Scholars & Scholarship

Each year the Black Achievers Society awards scholarships to area high school students. We provide several $1,000 scholarships for African American graduating seniors with a cumulative 3.7 or higher grade point average.

Students must attend a high school in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan area to be eligible. We encourage students to apply who best meet the following scholarship criteria:

  • academic achievement
  • extracurricular activities
  • community/civic involvement
  • financial need

Through our partnership with Honeywell, there are additional scholarship opportunities available.  Links to those application forms are below.
