The Howard Club provides academic scholarships to qualifying students from Southwest Florida approved to attend Howard University. Applicants may be either graduating seniors from local High Schools, college students transferring into Howard University, or college graduates approved to attend a Howard University Graduate program. Scholarship Awards are approved based on a student’s performance on a 100 point application scoring system that targets academic excellence, financial need, community service and leadership. Scholarship awards are generally $5,000 per year up to a maximum of $20,000 over four years. Scholarship Awards may be renewed each year until a student graduates as long as eligibility requirements are maintained.
