The Dream Big Scholarship is dedicated exclusively to graduating seniors from Banneker High School in College Park, Georgia. As a 2015 graduate of Banneker, I know how the lack of resources for our underprivileged school can make the transition to college extremely difficult. I hope that this scholarship will aid students as they pay for tuition, room & board, and other college-related fees.

​The Dream Big Scholarship is awarded to deserving high school seniors admitted to accredited colleges while sustaining a 2.5 GPA. Winners will be chosen based on a letter of recommendation and a short, 500-word essay answering the following questions: In what aspect has the culture of Atlanta influenced your upbringing, and how will you use the lessons you’ve learned from Atlanta to inspire others? Each winner will receive $1000 to cover college-related expenses.
