Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation Scholarship Program

The Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation works to make the dream of a better life a reality by championing equity and creating positive change in local communities by investing in students who represent the best of the human spirit – passion, curiosity and boundless dreams. The Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation Scholarship provides financial assistance to deserving students to help defray educational costs during matriculation at Spelman College.

The Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation Scholarship Program was founded with the goal of deepening the pathways of access to education for future leaders and encouraging community service participation to inspire and enact meaningful social change.

RL Corporate Foundation Scholars will meet this mission through engaging in community service in the Southwest Atlanta community where Spelman’s campus is located. Scholars receive the Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation Scholarship of $25,000 a year ($12,500 per semester) for up to four years. Five Spelmanites are selected as incoming first-year students and remain with the program for up to four years as they matriculate through Spelman College.
