How to Help

Shattering Expectations

The award-winning Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars program has made incredible progress since February 14, 2009. To capitalize on this success, we are counting on the gratitude and support of American University alumni, parents, and friends.

Achieving our mission - to elevate the ideas, influence, and impact of enterprising students for socially responsible leadership, post-baccalaureate education, and lifelong achievement - requires investments that provide financial aid, enhance programmatic initiatives, and address unforeseen challenges. Contributions from those who believe in our purpose are critically important. To support the Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars program, please visit our giving site.

Every Scholar. Every Year.
