Xerox is committed to the academic success of all minority students. That’s why we offer a Technical Minority Scholarship that awards between $1,000 and $10,000 to qualified minorities enrolled in a technical degree program at the bachelor level or above.
The Development Fund for Black Students in Science and Technology (DFBSST)is an endowment fund which provides scholarships to African-American undergraduate students who enroll in scientific or technical fields of study at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
DFBSST identifies students through the assistance of Engineering and Science Department deans and professors at pre-selected, predominantly Black colleges and universities. DFBSST requests the deans and faculty members to identify a specified number of students that they would like to be considered for scholarships, and to pass on DFBSSTscholarship application forms to these students.
To be eligible for scholarships offered by DFBSST, all applicants must meet the following criteria:
- African-American, undergraduate student majoring (or intending to major) in a technical field of study (i.e., engineering, math, science, etc.),
- Be enrolled (or identify his or her intention to enroll) at one of the predominantly Black colleges or universities listed below, and
- Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
Applicants are evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Academic achievement (grades and SAT scores, especially science/math),
- Personal essay describing career goals, current and past relevant extracurricular activities, etc.,
- Recommendations (teachers and guidance counselors), and
- Financial need.
Applicants are first ranked based on consideration of items 1, 2 and 3 above. If two (2) applicants are considered to be equal, the candidate with the greatest financial need is ranked higher.
The amount of the scholarships awarded each student is determined by the DFBSST Scholarship Committee. Scholarships are based on merit and financial need. Scholarship awards are up to $2,000 per year. Support is renewed annually, for a maximum of four (4) years, as long as the students remains in good academic standing at the same institution, enrolled in a full-time, undergraduate science or engineering curriculum, and submits a renewal application.
Applications can be obtained by contacting the science or engineering department at one of the schools listed below. We do not distribute applications directly to students. All applications must be obtained through and pre-screened by the schools. There can be no exceptions. Scholarship applications are currently available at the following schools:
