Young, Gifted, and Black --- but borrowing A LOT in student loans.
77% of black students borrow federal student loans (58.3% Latinx, 57.5% White, 47.3% Asian).
Colored Bird Institute aims to empower students of color to take ownership of their education through successfully obtaining merit-based scholarships. With $200,000 awarded in scholarships, grants, and fellowships - including a U.S. Fulbright to Germany, and a fully-funded Ph.D. to the University of Iowa, my goal is to help you get a debt-free college education, and to teach you the unwritten rules of higher education for students of color.
Through 1:1 mentoring, small groups, and master classes, the Institute creates a supportive community for students who have been historically underrepresented in scholarship applicant pools.
