McDonald’s USA Launches $500,000 Scholarship Fund to Help HBCU Students Return to School Amidst COVID-19 Crisis

McDonald’s announced the launch of its $500,000 Black and Positively Golden Scholarship Fund to help students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities continue their education this fall, despite impacts of COVID-19. Scholarships will be distributed for the 2020-2021 academic year.

“We know that education is the key to success,” said Marissa Fisher, a second-generation McDonald’s franchisee with four restaurants in southeast Louisiana. “With many college students uncertain of returning to classes in the wake of COVID-19, we understand HBCU students will be most impacted. As a brand with roots that run deep in communities, McDonald’s has been part of these students’ lives while growing up and is the place where many received their first jobs. We want to help ease some of the stress caused by this pandemic as they plan to return to school.”"

HBCU students can apply for a Black & Positively Golden scholarship now through August 3rd 2020 on McDonald's website.
