The Amadou Diallo Foundation is pleased to offer scholarship aid to deserving students, particularly to students of African descent or to students who are new immigrants to the United States. We are particularly interested in supporting the efforts of students who would otherwise not be able to continue their education without additional financial aid.

Because of the overwhelming number of applications, the Foundation must limit funds to the following eligible individuals: undergraduate students currently enrolled in or who have been admitted to Bronx Community College (CUNY), Stella and Charles Guttman Community College (CUNY), Bakeli Program (Guinea),and other approved partner programs.
Because of the enormous demand, we are asking all applicants to provide additional information about themselves including their academic background, future academic plans, current research, and/or work, and plans for the future. To apply for an ADF scholarship, use the form below to submit 500 words maximum telling us about your academic record, sharing your desired career goals post graduation, and explaining your reason for requesting support. The Foundation will be making its decisions based on student need and on the scholastic merit they demonstrate in this essay.
If your application is accepted for further review, we will contact you and ask that you furnish copies of your academic records to assure your eligibility for scholarship aid. If you are granted an award, the award will be administered through your school and its Scholarship Office or Office of Financial Aid.
