“ I Have A Dream” Scholarship Banquet & Ball
The Miss Annie Mae scholarship is designated for a returning student.
Scholarships are awarded each spring to minority students in the greater Madison community. Recipients must meet educational criteria and show evidence of community service. Awards are made in early spring and a reception is generally held in April. Funds are disbursed in the summer after proof of registration is submitted.
Recipients have chosen diverse career paths, including business, professional careers, music, medicine, dentistry and art. The scholarships represent a small portion of current college tuition, yet students report that the community recognition of their abilities to succeed and the support are very highly valued and meaningful for them.
