CGCS- Bernard Harris Scholarship Program

The CGCS-Bernard Harris Scholarship Program was established to encourage minority students to pursue college degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering and math. The scholarship was created by former NASA astroanaut Dr. Bernard Harris, the first African-American to walk in space. The winners of the 2019 scholarships were chosen from several hundred applicants in urban school districts represented by the Council of the Great City Schools for their academic performance, leadership qualities and community involvement. Each scholar received $5,000 for continued education in a STEM related field. Click here to read the press release.
