Be A King Scholarship
The Be A King Scholarship was established with a gift of $100,000 from Bernice King, C'85, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, and a contribution from the The Home Depot Inc. for $75,000. The endowed scholarship at Spelman College was established by Ms. King in memory of her mother, the late Coretta Scott King.
Appropriately titled, Be A King Scholarship, was established in January 2007 on the one-year anniversary of Mrs. King’s death. The scholarship provides financial assistance to deserving students with financial need who demonstrate a commitment to civic engagement, community service and volunteerism.
