VU and VUF funds scholarships for students of Color
These scholarships are administered by the Flourish Initiative, and include programming in addition to tuition and flexible funding for costs associated with diverse higher education programs. A total of $141,360 has been awarded in 2020/2021 in scholarships and grants.
The programming gives recipients personal and professional support through:
- Personal and Professional Development Programs
- Group Volunteering Coordination
- Semester check-ins
We are starting in Columbia, Missouri but as Flourish grows, the intent is to share the program with other foundations and communities to replicate.
