“At Society Awards, we strive to make an impact in the lives of young adults, especially those interested in pursuing visual or performing arts,” said David Moritz, Owner and CEO of Society Awards. “The NAACP Scholarship Program stood out to us because it gave us the opportunity to support and uplift a demographic of outstanding youth that can be empowered to fulfill their greatest potential, through an organization whose mission and program we full-heartedly believe in: investing in our young people is vital to supporting the next generation of leaders.”
Applications for the scholarship opened on April 17, 2023, and will close on May 21, 2023, at 11:59 pm EST.
