In 2012, five HBCU grads set out to shatter the perception that black alumni don’t give back to their alma maters. Lauren Legette, (Hampton ’11), Alize Beal (Howard ’12), Brendan Francis (Howard ’12), Roger Rojas (Morgan State ’01), and Anastasia Neely (Hampton ’12) founded the Puissance Scholarship, to aid in offsetting the cost of college tuition for high school seniors bound for an HBCU.
Scholarships are awarded through the generous monetary donations of fellow HBCU graduates and sponsors. Outside of the scholarship, the team develops programs to increase awareness about the benefits of HBCU for prospective students and to provide a network of support for the alumni they will become.
