The Rashawn Brazell Memorial Scholarship

The Rashawn Brazell Memorial Scholarship aims to provide a sustainable tribute to Rashawn Brazell, a 19-year-old Brooklyn native who was brutally murdered in February 2005. With each year the award is offered, we encourage a new wave of New York City high school students to reflect upon Brazell’s legacy of selfless service and to think critically about the impact of intolerance and violence on their communities.


The scholarship will be awarded annually to a college-bound student of African descent who resides in New York City. Although the award is not need-based, it is need-sensitive, meaning we strongly encourage applications from students who experience financial hardship. The scholarship is available to high school seniors, recently graduated students (within 1 year of graduation) and recent GED attainees (within 1 year) who have been accepted to an accredited undergraduate program.

Selection will be based on the student's interest in the struggle against racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of oppression, as well as their commitment to creating peace in the community by affirming and celebrating diversity.
