Scholarship Committee

The committee gives scholarships to high school seniors who have been a member of ASBC for a minimum of two years and have participated in youth activities, on a regular basis, during the last two years of high school. The committee also assists undergraduate students who are having financial difficulties. In addition, participants attend both academic and financial seminars throughout the day, to learn more about the college admissions process, and financial aid requirements. The weekend concludes with HBCU Sunday, where the guest speaker, from an HBCU, is recognized during Sunday Worship Services at ASBC.
