In 2015, the first annual President's Scholarship Gala raised over $300,000 for PSC scholars. As the 2016 event rolls around, sights are set even higher for this year's target. On Friday, September 23, at 6:00pm, Philander Smith College will host an evening of dinner, dancing, and entertainment at the State House Convention Center in Little Rock, AR with the purpose of bringing aware and financial support for under-represented students through the creation of internships, mentoring, enrichment programs, enhanced curriculum and other much needed resources.
Philander Smith College graduates one of the largest classes of African American students in Arkansas each year. Our work continues as we strive to reach thousands of young people who would be first in their family to earn a four-year degree.
We are determined to focus our resources and energy to reach the greatest number of students possible. Your donation to the Philander Smith College Scholarship Gala will enable students to prosper and benefit from a college education. Help ensure a better future for our community and Arkansas by an investment in our young minds.
