Program Update: The Little Rock Nine® Foundation no longer offers the Little Rock Nine® Foundation Scholarship and Mentoring Program.
The high school senior participation is done and the scholarship is closed for that group. The Little Rock Nine Foundation is now a small entity of the Clinton Foundation that helps a student in need as determined by the Clinton School of Public Service. An article and press release of this transition was released to the public in the summer of 2013.
We thank all of our previous recipients and those who took the time to apply. We wish you all the best in life.
The Little Rock Nine® Foundation’s Philosophy.
Many children still do not have access to adequate educational opportunities in the 21st Century. Because of their struggles for a quality education, the Little Rock Nine members, through their Little Rock Nine® Foundation, are committed to assuring that our youth, especially children of color, are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to become future leaders.
The mission of the Little Rock Nine® Foundation is to provide direct financial support and a mentorship program for students to help them reach their educational goals.
