Carrington-Philbert U.S. Undergraduate Scholarship
May 01, 2023
- Scholarship Description
This scholarship was established by Malcolm Carrington and Sherwin Bridgewater in memory of our grandparents, who instilled indomitable values of education, pursuing knowledge and achieving excellence in spite of circumstances. The road was not always easy nor were resources readily available, but the will and desire to achieve were resolute.
Helping others was routine in our households. Our grandparents always insisted that if you have one plate of food and someone visited while you are eating, take another plate and share with them. These values have been passed on from generation to generation and we are ready, willing and able to take the torch.
The Carrington-Philbert Scholarship program will award a $2,500 one-time scholarship to an entering U.S college/university freshman. Applicants should be African American. Applicants must plan to attend a U.S. two-year community college or four-year college. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
