The Crowned Princess Scholarship was established by Princess Chambers in 2015 to provide funding towards a young woman's college education. In 2021, we launched the Lula Holliday Memorial Scholarship, in honor of the mother of one of our supporters to continue her legacy through academic empowerment. Since then, eleven young women have been awarded one of the two scholarships.
This year, five young women will have an opportunity to receive academic or book scholarships ranging from $500-$2,000. In addition, awarded students will also be appointed a mentor to assist them with their transition from high school to college. Applicants must be a self-identifying young woman residing in one of the five boroughs of New York City; self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or a Person of Color (BIPOC) including Latinx, Asian, mixed race, etc; have graduated or will graduate from a New York City high school during the academic year the scholarship is awarded; intend to enroll full-time in an associates or bachelor’s degree program at a university or college during the fall of the year the scholarship is awarded and demonstrate commitment to academic achievement, leadership and service. Must be able to attend the scholarship awarding event.
