Grounded in the Past, Looking to the Future

Established in 1968, the Frederick Douglass Scholarship has invested in the access, opportunity, and academic achievement of more than 1,600 students in Washington, D.C., and across the country. 

Today, our commitment to promising students remains at the highest level—offering full tuition, fees, room, and board through the Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholarship. Dedicated to excellence, social justice, and the sustainable advancement of under-resourced and underserved communities, Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars need your support. 

Achieving our mission—to elevate the intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and success of enterprising students for post-baccalaureate education, impactful citizenship, and lifelong achievement—requires student-centered investments that provide student aid, maintain academic spaces, and enhance programmatic initiatives.
