Among many scholarships awarded to people of color one scholarship stands out, that is the MBKSA Education Partnership Scholarship.
My Brother’s Keeper – San Antonio is committed to provide support to boys and men of color, by giving them chances of developing the leadership skills and achieve higher education goals.
They are doing their best to make African American and Latino males in San Antonio and Bexar County have improved life chances through policy and systems change and developing leadership and capacity programs.
In the Summer of 2018 this scholarship is launched with the aim to increase the number of male teachers of color in the classroom.
Up to now, about 10 male teachers of color from across San Antonio were inspired by this award.
MBKSA stands for My Brother’s Keeper – San Antonio organization which in collaboration with Texas State Representative Barbara Gervin-Hawkins and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas, has created and keeps maintaining this program designed to help former male athletes of color who hold bachelor’s degrees and are interested in becoming teachers.
The award is there to support their recruitment, certification, professional and social development to ensure that they are culturally competent and equipped to teach in urban public schools.
The eligible people are only men of color, especially former college athletes, who are un- or underemployed.
Furthermore, college graduates are urged to apply for yearlong internship that will show them how to become teachers in areas related to their degrees.
How to Apply
You are suggested to apply today due to the fact that there are students within the San Antonio area that will graduate from a K-12 institution and will never have a male teacher and only 24% of Teachers within 15 Bexar County ISD’s identify as males.
Once you apply for this award and become selected as a winner, you will make a difference in this community and become one of a very few African American or Black teachers.
Once the application process is open, you will be able to find all the application details on the scholarship provider’s website.
You just need to follow the guidelines so as to successfully apply for it.
