Annual Salute & Scholarship Awards

In 2023, we will award over $200,000 in scholarships. These scholarships are designed to help bridge the gap and support the advancement of African American males in higher education. The organization believes that by investing in the education of African American males, they can help build a brighter future for the community as a whole.

The scholarships will be awarded based on academic achievement, community involvement, leadership potential, and financial need. Bridge Builders is dedicated to positively impacting the lives of African American males and helping them achieve their full potential.
