RIVERDALE PRESS: Scholarship Fund Open for College-Bound

College is only a few short months away, and the Bronx Rising Initiative hopes to take some of the financial burden away from high school seniors with eyes on higher education.


The Brandon Hendricks Scholarship is offering $5,000 scholarships to multiple Bronx high school seniors already admitted to college.


It’s named after a high school student and star basketball player from Monroe High School who was shot and killed last year.


Eligible students need to complete an application and two written responses on the Bronx Rising Initiative website, among other qualifications.


Deadline is May 31. To apply, visit bronxrisinginitiative.com/bhscholarship.
