Congratulations to Our New 2024 Scholarship Recipients!

Amir C

Trajectory Foundation is proud to announce that Amir C from Bogalusa, Louisiana has been awarded a Trajectory Foundation HBCU Scholarship. Amir will be attending Tuskegee University this fall and will major in Electrical Engineering. During our selection process we were impressed by his ability to standout in a crowd with unique insights and the resiliency he has shown. Despite facing challenges such as his mother’s illness and the damage to his home from Hurricane Ida in 2020, he never wavered in his commitment to his education. In his spare time, he has honed his skills in coding, robotics, and computer hardware – a valuable asset for his studies at Tuskegee. While Amir describes himself as “quiet,” he emphasizes that this reserved demeanor allows him to make his words and actions more impactful. We warmly welcome Amir to the Trajectory scholars’ family and are proud to support his growth!

Eshe T

Trajectory Foundation and Travelers Insurance are proud to announce Eshé (uh-shae) T as our 2024 Travelers Insurance HBCU Scholarship winner. Eshé is from Baltimore, MD, and is graduating high school a FULL YEAR EARLY. Her story is truly inspiring. Despite facing numerous obstacles, she never lost sight of her goals and persevered with a fierce determination to succeed. Her dedication to her education and community is a testament to her character and unwavering spirit. Eshé’s achievements in graduating high school a full year early and being accepted into the Honors College at Morgan State University are nothing short of remarkable. Her volunteer work with the non-profit Meals on Wheels organization is also a testament to her selflessness and desire to make a meaningful impact on the world. Eshé’s story serves as a reminder that with hard work, determination, and a positive attitude, anything is possible. Congratulations to Eshé – We are so excited to support you and thank you to the Travelers Insurance team for their partnership in the scholarship award.

Nate D

Nate hails from Chicago and attended Walter Payton College Prep Academy. While Nate starred at quarterback for his undefeated high school team it was his transparency about his struggles with mental health that first caught our eye. Nate has had to deal with racism even within his own football team and at school where racial isolation is commonplace. The burdens of being a captain of the football team, excelling at school, and helping out around the house with three younger siblings while witnessing violence in his daily life have weighed on him. As Nate writes, he brings “a unique understanding and empathy to my future role as a psychiatrist. With my education, I can help children like me get the treatment they need at an early age.”

Myari A

Trajectory Foundation is proud to award a $20,000 HBCU Scholarship to Myari A of Sacramento, CA to attend Spelman College this fall as a Computer Science major. Myari exudes a calm, confident nature born out of a vast array of very challenging life experiences. Throughout those challenges Myari never lost sight of herself. She reflects that those experiences have “gifted me with a profound sense of resilience, advocacy, and leadership.” She is inspired by her father who is a consistent and strong presence in her life. Myari’s transparent and direct communication style impressed us during her interview and will serve her well in life. We can’t wait to see her growth at Spelman where she will join two prior winners of Trajectory scholarship winners.

Serenity Adams

In partnership with the Sacramento Kings and G-Unity Foundation Inc., Trajectory Foundation awarded The Future is Yours Scholarship worth $20,000 to Serenity Adams of Grant High School on the court in front of 18,000 fans (see video). Serenity has an amazing story of resilience, faith, and community building. She graduated early from high school and will attend Hampton University in the fall and major in Neural Psychology. Jason Tenley, A. Philanda Moore and I were lucky enough to see the impact this scholarship has on Serenity and her family…and none of this is possible without our donor community, and the partnership of Veronne J. Clark, MPS, Katie Nicholson, Maritza Davis and the Kings.
