Black History Month was first observed in 1976 and is designed to recognize the importance of African American history, culture, and contributions to our society.
StepUp is excited to celebrate Black History throughout this month and the entire year because, when we embrace diversity, we learn new ideas and perspectives, develop positive relationships, and express compassion and understanding toward all people. In order to promote diversity in education and the workforce, many colleges and private organizations offer scholarships specifically for minority students – here are just a few of those scholarship opportunities you can check out: click here for more details
