Rainbow PUSH Coalition Events
The PUSH Excel Scholarship Program was created to assist young people who are qualified but lack the financial resources to attend college. The goal of the program is to develop servant leadership potential in the scholarship students and encourage a spirit of social justice and social change.
PUSH Excel Scholarship Program dates:
Aramark Trades deadline April 30, 2021
Toyota / Jesse Jackson Fellows deadline May 31, 2021
Ora Lee & Cirilo McSween deadline June 30, 2021
PUSH Excel makes a number of awards each year through four named scholarships: Jesse Jackson Fellows - Toyota, Ora Lee Sanders, Cirilo McSween, and Aramark Trades. Scholarship recipients will be selected from the pool of applicants who apply for a particular scholarship and meet the minimum criteria provided in the guidelines. There are no geographical limitations–applicants are selected from across the nation, except for Aramark Trades.
Applicants should apply for the scholarship that best fits their particular situation. You may apply for only one scholarship in a particular year and, if awarded a renewable scholarship, may not apply for a different scholarship in subsequent years. Applications will be evaluated by a committee of educators and corporate executives. Click here to learn more.
