La La Anthony has teamed up with McDonald’s in partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide $500,000 in scholarships to HBCU students through the Black and Positively Golden Scholarship program.

Incoming and current HBCU students have the opportunity to win up to $15,000 in scholarships. Applications are due June 7, 2021, by 11:59 p.m. 

Last year, the program gave up to $15,000 each to HBCU students. The year prior, they gave away 6 individual scholarships.  This year’s initiative comes on the heels of historic moments that have many taking a renewed look at the importance of HBCUs.

“As a person who went to an HBCU, I know the importance of education. I know the importance of HBCUs, where we can go to a college and experience things that are all for us, that represent who we are, and are representative of our culture. It's so important,” Anthony told Blavity.

Anthony attended Howard University in Washington, D.C., where she participated in the on-campus radio and television stations. She says her Howard experience prepared her for independence and taught her how to interact with people from all walks of life.
