Scandrett Disabilities Scholarship Fund Fundraiser and Awards Ceremony
(Fund Raising)

The Scandrett Disabilities Scholarship Fund was created at Howard University in 1992. The Fund was established by Mr. Arthur P. Scandrett, a Howard alumnus (BA '69), with the express purpose of helping financially needy, disabled students. It is the only scholarship fund of its kind at Howard University.

Held annually in March, the Scandrett event is a brunch and scholarship awards ceremony. This fundraiser serves as the principal means of soliciting support for the fund. Funds are solicited through ticket sales and sponsorship. The highlight of the event is the awarding of scholarships to winners who applied by application. A brief bio of each student is read during the presentation, including a quotation from an essay written as part of the application. These readings have often moved audiences to tears. Scholarship winners make a brief acceptance speech and attendees enjoy a delicious buffet meal. Musical or other artistic selections are presented by an accomplished artist(s) and background music is played throughout the event.

This year, the fundraiser & scholarship award celebration are scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 12:00 noon to 3:30 p.m. in Howard's Blackburn Center Ballroom. The program will feature live musical entertainment.

The Scandrett fundraiser also doubles as Mr. Scandrett's birthday celebration. "What better way to celebrate another year of being on earth, than by doing something to help others," says Mr. Scandrett.

The Scandrett Disabilities Student Scholarship Fund traditionally awards from three to four scholarships each year. The amount awarded depends on the funds available in a given year after expenses, and the need is always greater than the Fund is able to meet.
