The Power of Education

To address racial injustice in America through the power of education, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC-PGC) has partnered with Pearson Online Academy to offer 50 full-tuition scholarships to Black students (Grades 6-12) involved in social justice advocacy from across the nation. Recipients who desire the flexibility, personalization, and safety of online learning will be selected by the Prince George’s County Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC-PGC), the interfaith civil rights organization that was led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and is on the frontlines of today’s grassroots advocacy for racial justice and equity in communities across America.  

Application is Open for 2022 School Year
