The mission of the W. Bernard White Education Foundation is to assist in the development of future African-Americans pursuing education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in Southeastern Michigan by providing financial assistance for scholarships and text books, in an effort to ensure that these students have the opportunity to excel in their studies and graduate.

The Foundation endeavors to award scholarships and financial assistance each year to African-American high school seniors from Southeastern Michigan who qualify for financial aid. Applicants must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average and be accepted to a four year college curriculum as an engineering or technology student.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela
