  • Scholarship Description
  • 5 Strong partners with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to provide promising student leaders with full-tuition scholarships and ongoing mentorship and support from matriculation to graduation. We start with detailed information sessions to figure out if 5 Strong is the right fit for you. For those who apply and are accepted, we build teams of 5 scholars and provide bimonthly College Ready Prep Sessions. We work with participating HBCUs to arrange scholarships and admission as a 5-scholar cohort. We provide monthly cohort meetings and ongoing support from a team of experienced educators that has over 30 years of combined experience helping minority students graduate from high school and get into college. And, four years after starting college, we celebrate as each cohort of 5 scholars graduates together.

    To be eligible for the 5 Strong Scholarship Atlanta, applicants must: reside in the Atlanta, GA metropolitan area (Fulton County and all surrounding counties); be a current-year graduating high school senior; demonstrate the potential to be a leader in the classroom and on campus; have earned a GPA of at least 3.0; have a minimum ACT score of 19 or a combined SAT score of 990 for both Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math sections; commit to 5 Strong and the selected HBCU that you will be attending; and be available to attend all mandatory bimonthly College Ready Prep Sessions in person in Atlanta.
