McDonald's owners in the Tennessee Valley are giving back to the area's HBCU community by awarding $10,000 in scholarships. These business owners are providing 10 lucky HBCU students with $1,000 each through the McDonald's Greater Tennessee Valley Operators Association (GTVOA) Trailblazer Scholarship.
The scholarship is available for students attending HBCUs throughout Tennessee and Northern Alabama—including Fisk, Alabama A&M, Austin Peay State, Meharry Medical College, Tennessee State, Oakwood and J.F. Drake State Community College.
The funds will be available for the upcoming 2022-2023 academic year, and they "can only be applied to verifiable costs associated with average tuition and usual fees." Eligible students can apply until Mar. 21, and the ten winners will be announced in April.
