The Douglass School Alumni Scholarship Committee has given more than 30 scholarships to many deserving African-American students. This was a project of the graduating class of 1946.

We are grateful for the many businesses and individuals that contributed. Thanks you for supporting these students.

This year will be the last year we will be awarding scholarships.
