It is with great excitement and significance that we announce The African American First-Generation MARCH Foundation & Bill Dickey Scholarship. The MARCH Foundation is a private non-profit organization launched to support the education of African American youth. Since its inception, the MARCH Foundation has awarded more than 1200 students with scholarships in excess of one-million dollars.
“Access to college and internships would have been a financial burden for most MARCH scholarship recipients.”
The MARCH Board is comprised of active and retired United Parcel Service (UPS) African American senior executives with tenure of over 30 years. They began as services providers or part-time inside employees. Their personal financial investments provided the source for scholarships and grants. They have influenced young students throughout the U.S for decades and continue to make a positive impact in many communities.
The Bill Dickey Scholarship Association (BDSA) mission is “to provide young people of color with scholarship opportunities and to create unique pathways in competitive golf and the business world.”
Together we will maintain a partnership to impact more eligible youth, changing their lives through education “Building Hope… One Stroke At A Time.”
