Scholarship support

For more than 30 years, the Black Alumni Council has demonstrated support for the next generation of outstanding citizens and leaders through an endowed scholarship and student emergency fund.

Our mission and history

The mission of the Washington University Black Alumni Council is to support the professional and personal development of WashU Black alumni, to assist the university in the recruitment and retention of African-American students, and to enhance the continued growth and development of the university as an exemplary institution.

Stay in the know

All alumni in the area should receive notices of events, but we can’t send them to you if we don’t know where you are! Update your alumni profile to stay connected.
