11 Scholarships For Black Students Around The World With January Deadlines

This year alone, approximately $50 billion will be given away in scholarships for Black students around the world. But surprisingly, thousands of dollars worth of scholarships go unclaimed every year because no one applies for them.

Some of this money could be yours, but many of these programs have deadlines that are fast-approaching.

Here are 11 scholarships with deadlines in January:




Havana Healing: Castro’s Minority Scholarship Plan is open to students in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and the United States. Recruits must be high school graduates younger than 26. They will receive free medical education and training, plus free textbooks and room and board. Beneficiaries would have to return to their communities to practice medicine after being trained in Cuba. Students should register for the program by spring.

Black ScholarshipsThe Tom Joyner Foundation “Full Ride” Scholarship awards a full scholarship to one student to attend a Historically Black College and University (HBCU).

  1. Where are the comments for this article? It has been up for 2 days and no one has even stopped by to say anything? It shows you the priorities of some black people. They would rather go around condemning 'the white man' rather than seek out opportunities which can help them to become just as good or even better than 'the white man.'

    We'll I have shared and printed the info! Hopefully others will do the same. Thanks for the info. 🙂

  3. Just because there aren't any comments does not mean people aren't looking into these scholarships or forwarding the information on to others. Why does everything have to be about black or white? We all want better for us and our children, but that doesn't mean we have to comment on everything we see or read.

    There is only one scholarship here for African students. If anyone has any idea of other scholarships that includes Africans, I pray the link should be sent to me
