Madison College establishes scholarship in honor of George Floyd

Madison College establishes scholarship in honor of George Floyd.


During the memorial service for George Floyd, Dr. Scott Hagan, President of North Central University where the service was held, challenged every university president across the nation to establish a scholarship in Mr. Floyd’s name. Since then dozens of colleges and universities have followed North Central’s lead and started scholarships in memory of George Floyd, whose death at the hands of Minneapolis police has led to massive national protests and worldwide demonstrations.

In solidarity with the nation’s colleges and universities coming together to support the Black community and racial equity, the Madison College Foundation in collaboration with Madison College is establishing the George Floyd Memorial Scholarship with an inaugural gift from President, Dr. Jack E. Daniels, III.

This scholarship will be available to Black students studying at Madison College through the Madison College Foundation scholarship process.
