The Vanguard Minority Scholarship Program provides merit-based scholarships of up to $10,000 to students entering their junior or senior year of college during the 2012 school year. The program’s goal is to remove financial barriers for minority students who demonstrate academic excellence and leadership potential. Students must be pursuing studies in business, finance, economics, or accounting. Scholarship funds can be used for tuition, fees, books and supplies.
Since introducing this program in 2004, Vanguard has awarded approximately $350,000 to deserving college students.
