Our youth need more Resources to thrive!

The Bronx Rising Initiative believes that to uplift our community we must focus on the most vulnerable in our community – that includes our youth. 

We work to secure needed resources for local youth to empower them to take positive steps in their life by identifying resources to give directly to our college-bound young people and supporting diverse and dynamic youth programming opportunities.

Brandon Hendricks Scholarship Fund

The Bronx Rising Initiative supports Bronx students that are entering their freshman year of college through awards of $5,000. These funds will be used to help them excel in their studies and support their first year at college. This is a competitive scholarship based on application responses. Applicants are selected by a steering committee. Applicants must complete the BRI survey and two essay questions.

Apply when applications open on 6/1/2021. ​
