The commitment of the African American Youth Leadership Conference is to support, promote and foster leadership, education, and positive self-esteem among our youth. By the recommendation of Dr. Anne Bouie, the AAYLC committee established the Debra Wynn/Cleasther Marchman Scholarship Program for minority students.
These youth leadership scholarships and grants provide financial assistance to high school seniors who are interested in pursuing college or vocational studies upon graduation from high school. Grants are given to assist other students in grades 6-11 who are interested in participating in an educational program, event or activity sponsored by their school, church, or community. To date, over $240,000.00 has been awarded to students.
The Wynn/Marchman Scholarship Committee believes that all high school students who have demonstrated passion, dedication, and commitment to furthering their education by demonstrating: Confidence, Consciousness of Society, Commitment to Self and the Community, Competency at Grade Level and Caring for Self and Others should be given the opportunity to apply for a scholarship. Students with a GPA of 2.0 and higher are eligible to apply for our youth leadership scholarship.
In addition, the AAYLC is honored to be in partnership with Colorado College by annually awarding a Wynn/Marchman Scholarship Prize to a selected Colorado College student who has demonstrated excellence in the "Race, Ethnic and Migration" Studies Program.
