Buffalo 10 Scholarship
On May 14, 2022, a mass murderer motivated by racial hatred killed ten African Americans and injured three other individuals. A group of clergy and laity from the Niagara Frontier District gathered to discern ways to address the systemic racism that continues to impact residents of the East Side of Buffalo and elsewhere in our region. The Buffalo 10 Scholarship (UNY-Buffalo 10) was adopted at the 2022 Upper New York Annual Conference and is dedicated to helping youth in identified communities of Buffalo, New York succeed in higher education.
The Mission of the Buffalo 10 Scholarship is to improve educational opportunities in the zip codes adjacent to the Jefferson Avenue Tops Market (14208, 14211, 14214). Specifically, the scholarship helps youth in these areas address persisting inequities by resourcing them to complete their college education.
The Vision of the Buffalo 10 Scholarship is more educated and empowered young adults serving in the designated area to create communities characterized by love, justice, and peace.
Applications are being accepted until 5 p.m. on April 30, 2023 for all eligible youth residing in the following zip codes: 14208, 14211, 14214. Click here (PDF) or here (electronic version) for an application and click here to view the flyer.
