Middleton Scholars Education Assistance Fund Scholarship


Our nation grapples with its complex history that once, and at times still, favored some at the expense of others. In 2021, Middleton Place Foundation established the Education Assistance Fund to benefit the Middleton Place African American descendant community. The mission of the Middleton Place Foundation is to inspire positive change through gaining a deeper understanding of our shared American history.

The goal of the educational assistance fund is to support the recipients in building a better future through education; recognizing that education is essential for equality, independence, and financial stability.

This Fund is a catalyst to help leave the world in a better place for generations to come.
