The Development Fund for Black Students in Science and Technology (DFBSST) provides African American scholarships to undergraduate students enrolled in a participating Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCU) who are pursuing degrees in scientific or technical fields such as engineering, science and math.
The DFBSST minority scholarships program was initiated by a group of black technical professionals who recognized the need to provide scholarships for African American students pursuing high-demand scientific or technical careers at the nation’s HBCUs.
Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis, and are valued at up to $2,000 per year for up to four years. Applicants are nominated by deans and faculty members at participating schools and the DFBSST volunteer Board of Directors makes the final award determination. Criteria include outstanding academic achievement, essays, letters of recommendation and demonstrated financial need.
