The Greater Augusta HBCU Alumni Alliance was organized in February 2013. Chapter representatives from twelve Historically Black College and University alumni chapters came together expressing an interest in forming an HBCU alumni alliance. Our mission/goal is to assist high school juniors and seniors in making decisions and choices about college. We encourage students to consider HBCUs when enrolling in college. We also provide scholarships to students who attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
During our first year, 2013-2014, we sponsored a picnic/mixer to introduce our organization to the community. Thirty four (34) HBCUs were represented at the mixer.
We sponsor an annual HBCU college fair and career day for high school students.
As a fundraiser we sponsored an annual 5K Fun Run/Walk and Health Fair. Funds raised provide scholarships to high school seniors planning to attend an HBCU.
To date we have awarded over $48,000 in scholarships. A scholarship application can be downloaded from this site.
We have made monetary donations to the 100 Black Men, Paine College, and The Golden Harvest Food Bank.
