Awards Available: See Description

  • Scholarship Description
  • The plight of dwindling communities and youth who seek their future elsewhere instead of strengthening the ranks of hometown leaders and game changers is one that has been played out time and again across the Alabama Black Belt.
    In an effort to combat that sad refrain, Dr. Arthur Dunning and Mr. Taylor Jones announce the establishment of the William Curry Scholarship for Academic and Community Leadership through the Black Belt Community Foundation (BBCF).

    This scholarship is designed to enhance the lives of youth in Marengo County and the Black Belt of Alabama by awarding scholarships and creating internships and opportunities for these students to return to the Black Belt, thus continuing the example of life and legacy so brightly established by Rev. Curry. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
