About this fundraiser

This unique tour strives to stimulate interest among select students in attending one of the public or privately supported HBCUs. This year, we will visit eight colleges: Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, Morehouse College, Morris Brown College, Claflin University, South Carolina State University, Tuskegee University, and Fort Valley State University. The project's long-term objective is to develop ways and means to ensure that qualified BMHS high school students become familiar with the historic mission of Black Colleges and Universities and their broad range of high-quality educational programs and academic fields. Another objective is to identify students who would especially benefit from the stimulating and supportive learning environments so characteristic of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

The 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, while comprising only three percent of the nation's 3,688 institutions of higher learning, are responsible for producing approximately 23 percent of all bachelor's degrees. Over 50 percent of African Americans who graduate from HBCUs go on to graduate or professional schools. HBCUs contribute to the continuing rise of black intellectuals, professionals, and creative artists, which is evident throughout American society. HBCUs graduate over 50 percent of African-American professionals, 50 percent of African American public school teachers, and 70 percent of African American dentists. HBCUs also award more than one in three of the degrees held by African Americans in natural sciences.

By participating in this fundraiser, you will be helping approximately 30 young people in their pursuit of higher education! Our students will receive an enhanced awareness of the academic programs, entrance requirements, career opportunities, social and emotional support mechanisms, and financial resources offered by HBCUs. In addition, our own Knightingales Step Team will be performing! The trip will also include time when the youth will be able to see the most popular sites and attractions in the area and participate in a community service project.
