Investing in the Future
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde
Northern Michigan E3 sees Collective and Community Care to be central to our region's ability to educate, elevate, and engage each other around topics of Anti-Racism. One of ways to do that is to financially invest in the future of our Black and Brown neighbors.
Please find below our current opportunities to receive scholarships or financial support.
And if you are interested in contributing to the funds, consider making a donation.
E3 Education Dream Scholarship - Apply
Knowledge is power - but access to education in all forms has been restricted to students of color. These barriers, ranging from redlined neighborhoods and the school districts directly affected by them to systemic lack of generational wealth have provided challenges to furthering a student's education after High School.
The Educational Dream Fund takes the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. and seeks to lift up our communities by providing financial support to students as they transition into their next educational journey.
Yearly at the Juneteenth Celebration, Northern Michigan E3 will award this scholarship of up to $2000 to students of color graduates in our community. This fund can be used for post-secondary education, trade programs, professional certifications, or any other way to gain more knowledge that will empower their life goals.
