Big Hats & Brims Scholarship Brunch

Each spring, we host our Big Hats & Brims Scholarship Brunch as our opportunity to showcase the Mary McLeod Bethune Scholarship Award recipients and acknowledge individuals who have positively impacted the Black community. Funds raised from this event provide scholarship awards to 8 college-bound youth. Honorees are distinguished individuals who have given much to ensure the success of others.

The NYAC Scholarship Committee along with New York Alumnae Deltas, Inc. distributes the award to support 8 graduating high-school seniors through four years of college in the pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Scholarships are renewable annually based on academic performance. Additional scholarships are granted contingent upon the proceeds from fund-raising activities. Our Past Scholarship Awardees have attended numerous prestigious Colleges and Universities.
