Steve and Marjorie Harvey Endowed Scholarship | Spelman College
This scholarship was created to fill a need at Spelman College. The scholarship is available to female juniors and seniors who are at risk of not completing their education due to a disruption in personal funding. The Harvey's thought it imperative to create a scholarship that would help keep deserving young women in school, and help them achieve their ultimate goal of graduating from Spelman.

Eligible candidates must be full-time junior or senior level students with financial need and academic merit as determined by the Spelman Program Administrator. The scholarship is renewable for junior level recipients through their senior year, as long as the selection criteria are met.

This scholarship is administered directly through Spelman College. The application process begins every March for the next school year. Click Here for More Information
