SCHOLARSHIP

Cave-Whiteman Scholarship

This is our signature Program. This program is a multifaceted program. It is made up of 3 parts.

A --- The Cave-Whiteman Scholastic Award. This is an award-winning program which identifies students in the 8th grade who have the academic potential to succeed but who are likely not to achieve academically because of poor social skills, socioeconomic issues, behavioral issues, low self-esteem, followers rather than leaders, etc. The students are accepted into the program in the 9th grade and are supported in any way necessary for them to complete high school and attend a vocational school or college. The award has no specific monetary value since each student is unique and their needs may vary. The students are supported and guided throughout high school and college/vocational school via mentoring, tutoring, SAT prep courses, and financial support for books, clothes, food, transportation, college applications, etc.

B --- A $1000 annual scholarship award to a student in good standing and with academic promise at Medgar Evers College.

C --- A $1000 annual scholarship award to a student in good standing and with academic promise at Metropolitan College of New York.

“Call Me Sir” Conference

This program was initiated by Archon Melvin Douglas at the Metropolitan College of New York to establish and maintain relationships with young men for dialogue, mentoring, and modeling success. The Call Me Sir Conference, co-sponsored by YOUniversity Bound, Metropolitan College of New York, and the Alpha Sigma Boule Foundation, was formed in order to serve as a nidus and allow accessibility for scholars to come face to face with leaders and accomplished individuals for guidance and support. The belief is that for young men to reach their greatest heights and aspirations, they need to have self-confidence and a positive identity.
