Research shows the number of African-American males entering and graduating from college continues to stagger greatly behind others. The Asfaw Family Foundation International (AFFI) has designed the “Aim High” scholarship program to increase the number of African-American males enrolled in colleges and universities. This year we hope to impact the lives of ten young men in our community by soliciting their participation in our scholarship program.
Along with financial awards, recipients will receive a new laptop during our 11thAnnual Arches of Hope Bicycle Give-A-way. The Arches of Hope will present 200 bicycles and helmets to 5th and 6th graders nominated by principals and community leaders based on five categories: Scholastic Achievement and Improvement; Good Citizenship; Financial Need; Chronic Illness; or Parents serving in the Military.
The program will take place Sunday, December 1, 2016, at Manual High School’s Thunderdome Gymnasium located at 1700 E. 28th Avenue in Denver. Scholarship recipients must be present to receive their award.
