The NAACP's best-known legal victory was Brown vs. Board of Education, the 1954 Supreme Court ruling outlawing school segregation. The NAACPs lead lawyer in the case was Thurgood Marshall, who later became the first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Today, equal education in Loudoun County remains at the forefront of our efforts.
The goal of the 2024 NAACP Loudoun Branch Scholarship is to provide financial assistance and encouragement to high school graduates of color, specifically African American/Black students in Loudoun County.
A financial scholarship can alter the trajectory of a high school graduate. Historically, students of color, specifically African American/Black students in Loudoun County have been underrepresented as financial scholarship recipients and continue to face many barriers in their pursuit of financial support beyond high school.
For over 80 years, the NAACP Loudoun Branch continues to be the catalyst towards building a better future by investing in the youth of Loudoun County.
Recipient(s) will receive up to $1,000 to aid in funding their post-high school aspirations.
For 2024, we are offering 3 types of scholarships:
$1,000 - NAACP Loudoun Branch Scholarship
$1,000 - NAACP Fitz Alexander Campbell Thomas (F.A.C.T.) Memorial Scholarship
$500 - NAACP High School Youth Chapter Scholarship
