"Regions Riding Forward" Scholarship Essay Contest

Regions Riding Forward Scholarship Essay Contest

Regions Bank, headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, offers scholarship awards to low income African American students every year during Black History month. Students must participate in an essay contest that addresses the contributions of Black people. Every year, about 7,000 entries are received, but only 30 scholarship recipients are chosen.
The competition, one of few that genuinely celebrates Black history, is open to high school seniors as well as college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. The awards are based on the results of the essay contest, each applicant must submit a 500-word essay about how an African-American has been an inspiration in their life.

One high school recipient and one college recipient will be selected from each of the 15 states served by Regions branches, for a total of 30 scholarship recipients. Winners are generally announced in June and scholarships are awarded in July.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in FEBRUARY, and the award amount is up to $5,000.
