Since its inception in 1909, the NAACP has taken a leading role in fighting to secure positive, equitable changes in educational institutions throughout the nation. The NAACP recognizes, however, that far too many of America's most promising citizens are still prevented from pursuing their educational goals due to limited financial resources. In an effort to promote equal opportunity in education, the NAACP Branch 1034 offers several $500 scholarships annually.
