Education Grant Program

As part of the overall NAACP “Call For Action In Education” (a call for action that seeks to guarantee that all students are provided an equal opportunity for a world-class education), it is the goal of the Edwardsville Branch to pursue and implement programs and plans that ultimately can be measured by the achievement of our students. It is not only our commitment, but our responsibility to see that every child who desires to continue their education is armed with the necessary tools to build a solid foundation so they may be able to realize their potential, their hopes, and their dreams. Given this goal, we are proud to present the Edwardsville NAACP Education Grant Program for local high school seniors.


Failure to answer all questions and submit requested documents by the deadline will result in the disqualification of your application. Decisions are made by the NAACP Grant Committee.  All decisions are final.
