ABOUT THE

Gap Fund

What is the GAP Fund?

 

Every year we ask our members to make a voluntary donation of $50 in addition to their membership dues. This donation goes to The Howard University Alumni Association for their Emergency Scholarship Fund for rising seniors that have immediate financial needs during the course of the year.  Your donation supports prospective graduates whose continuation at Howard University is severely threatened due to financial crisis. Donations to this emergency fund provide need-based scholarships that bridge the GAPs needed to allow these students to succeed. This “Gap Fund” is available to all thirteen schools and colleges of the University.  Thank you for your generosity.

Howard University has produced 4 Rhodes Scholars, 11 Trumans, and more than 165 Fulbright recipients...

We produce more on-campus African American Ph.D. recipients than any other university in the U.S.
