The BLM² Scholarship was founded on the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further his or her education. Removing some of the financial burdens associated with college, BLM² plays a vital role in increasing college access to minorities. All BLM² Scholars are asked to “give back“ in some capacity by community service, mentoring others or donations.
