One of the advantages of having EDUCATE BLACK AMERICA on the Internet is complete access to the information on a 24-hour per day/365 day per year basis. Students, parents, working professionals, and members of the general population can access America’s Black Collegians and The Black Higher Education Channel from home, public libraries, schools, work as well as the computers of family, friends, and associates. Access to this information will never be an obstacle as long as people who want and need to know have a commitment to success, perseverance, and persistence. As an example, the EDUCATE BLACK AMERICA initiative was developed and launched with public computer access.

At the America’s Black Collegians web site, a full array of general questions and answers are provided in the ABOUT US section. You can find out about how the program works and how it can benefit you.

Each learning provider on The Black Higher Education Channel provides complete details about their individual programs on their web sites.

EDUCATE BLACK AMERICA was built so that people who are challenged to fulfill their dreams will come.

EDUCATE BLACK AMERICA is a new Internet-based initiative that provides scholarships, information on financial aid, and excellent resources from education experts on making the best education choices and decisions. We believe that making the right career and school choice is equally as important as having the ability and financial resources to pursue higher education.

From our dual web sites, America’s Black Collegians,, and The Black Higher Education Channel,, visitors can get all the necessary details on choices from K-12 to college to career and trade education to professional and management development to distance learning and continuing education. Also included is a comprehensive directory of scholarships and financial aid.

Our sites are constantly expanding and designed to provide the “Best from the Web.” Our scholarship and financial aid focus is on Black students but our comprehensive directory of educational choices is a valuable resource for all students. We have, however, set aside a special section, “Diversity Seekers” in the America’s Black Collegians Network to identify some colleges and universities that are making outstanding efforts to diversify their campuses. In recognition of their efforts, America’s Black Collegians is establishing special scholarship funds for these schools.

We invite you to join us and welcome your support.
