The Black Girl 44 Scholarship is there to recognize, respect and welcome females involved in politics and global relations, so if you are a college student looking to get involved in politics, a Washington, D.C. internship is the right thing for you.

However, many students do not apply because they cannot afford it and that especially affects Black and African-American students.

Through this scholarship, they will get an equal and fair opportunity.

Full Description

The Black Girl 44 Scholarship was created by former Obama White House alum Deesha Dyer.

It is made available thanks to more than 55 Black / African-American women who worked in the Obama White House.

This is a private and independent initiative that awards three $1,500 scholarships to Black/African-American women with the goal to support them financially.

Who's eligible?

If you are thinking about eligibility requirements, you should know that you need to be a Black/African American woman who is a college student and who has earned a Washington, D.C. internship that relates to policy, community engagement, community service, advocacy, global relations or politics.

If your internship relates to policy, community engagement, community service, advocacy, global relations or politics, then it qualifies for this award and you are encouraged to apply.

Otherwise, you will be considered ineligible and your application will be rejected.

In order to qualify for this honor, candidates must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate institution or have graduated with a Bachelors’s degree.

Before submitting your name for consideration, you need to provide all the documents that will prove this and it should be done prior to July 31.

The great thing is that you do not have to be a democrat to apply and there is no age limit when it comes to this scholarship.

How to Apply

The scholarship recipients will be determined according to their application material.

The application process starts on June 19 and finishes on July 31st, so you are supposed to provide all the documents prior to that date.

Winners will be notified in August and they will receive their scholarship award at a September luncheon in Washington, D.C.
