The Scotti Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) created to influence the journeys of Black students in and through higher education in the United States. Currently, it consists of three scholarship programs:
- The Scotti-Coleman Scholars Program (Chicago, Illinois): a $1,000 scholarship awarded to two Black male seniors in either the IB Diploma Program or who have taken 4+ AP courses at Morgan Park High School.
- The Dorothy Hasty-Scotti Education Fund (Tallahassee, Florida): a $750 scholarship awarded to two Florida A&M University School of Education students each semester.
- [NEW] COVID-19 Student Microgrant (United States): In response to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black students, and in recognition of our ever-present mission to positively influence the college completion rate for Black students, we are excited to offer COVID-19 microgrants for Black students currently enrolled in a two-year or four-year course of study. Our goal, powered by your generosity, is to give 20 student grants in 2021.
