For almost sixty years, the Black Student Fund (BSF) has been pivotal in helping families access quality education in DMV independent schools. Evolving from a scholarship fund to a comprehensive service organization, BSF offers holistic services and enrichment opportunities, fostering student success both academically and personally.

Eligible families receive a suite of benefits, including a tuition grant, emergency resources, summer enrichment, and access to BSF partner programs. Beyond financial assistance, BSF supports families with school advocacy, youth development workshops, STEM programs, and cultural events, tailoring its offerings to meet the evolving needs and talents of its scholars. Participation in BSF's programs and activities is mandatory for member families, underscoring our commitment to their holistic development. The rewards of being part of BSF extend far beyond the financial grant, enriching the educational journey of our scholars.
