The Walt Disney Corporate Scholars Program will target high-achieving African American students in under-served communities across the country.
In addition to financial assistance, the Corporate Scholars Program will offer selected students a range of career-building tools. Participants will have access to mentorships, a Career Navigator Web-based platform for learning, and be given the opportunity to compete for internships within the Walt Disney Company.
The four-year award for undergraduates will be administered by UNCF. Half of the recipients will be selected from historically black colleges and universities, while the others will come from other academic institutions.
Students must have an interest in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, among other requirements.
Students can find additional information at www.uncf.org/disneyscholars.
The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of ABC News.
