Welcome to the 5th year of our National Black Scholars Initiative! The initiative is sponsored by the Phi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. The initiative was born out of the National Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Program “Go To High School, Go To College” and the desire to acknowledge the academic successes of African American students. Each year the academic shortfalls of African American students, becomes a major topic of conversation. Statistics are constantly posted on webpages, blogs, and newspapers about the high drop-out rates and about the state of young Black youth in America. On the other end of those devastating statistics is a determined group of young men and women that are doing all they need to do to be successful. The initiative was launched to shine a light on the young African American students that have worked hard in school and those that have made plans to matriculate to different college/universities, and schools of higher learning throughout the United States.
We are preparing for our 2017 National Black Scholars Signing Day! This is the 5th year of our initiative!
