WASHINGTON, DC - UNCF (United Negro College Fund) has combined its mission-based efforts with BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. and Procter & Gamble's (P&G) My Black is Beautiful campaign to present the BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Imagine a Future scholarship. The award is aimed to offer financial assistance to "dynamic young women in pursuit of higher education."

"We couldn't be more excited to support these young women in reaching their scholastic goals," stated Paulette Jackson, Vice President of Development at UNCF. "Corporate partnerships, such as the one between UNCF, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! and Procter & Gamble, are essential to supporting college students' success. This partnership, in particular, is a major investment in the Better Futures of our young people, our community and the country."

The BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Imagine A Future Scholarship, which is made possible through the generosity of P&G and the combined mission-based work of UNCF, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! and My Black is Beautiful, was established to reach and teach one million black girls over three years through tools and solutions that include financial assistance to dynamic young women in pursuit of higher education. Through the My Black is Beautiful Imagine a Future initiative, each BLACK GIRLS Rock! Imagine A Future scholarship recipient will receive $5,000 to be used toward tuition or other educational expenses at their respective schools.

"We received over a thousand applications for the BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Imagine a Future Scholarship and executed a rigorous selection process in order to determine the five finalists for this award," said BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Founder/Executive Director, Beverly Bond. "The candidates for this award truly represent the breadth of talent and the deep commitment to community development possessed by our young Black female scholars across disciplines. We are so honored to use our platform and philanthropy to help these young women cultivate the knowledge, skills, and life-experiences that will make them the confident leaders and bold trailblazers of our future!"

This year's BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Imagine a Future Scholarship recipients hail from Bennett College (Greensboro, NC), Binghamton University (Binghamton, NY), Howard University, (Washington, DC) and Spelman College (Atlanta, GA).

"These young ladies are the epitome of what the Imagine A Future program is all about. It's our privilege to celebrate their commitment to academic excellence, leadership and community service," said Crystal Harrell, senior manager, P&G Communications. "We are proud to support their efforts to imagine a beautiful future for themselves and their communities."
