Cowrie Scholarship Foundation

Cowrie Scholarship Foundation (@CowrieSF) 

The Cowrie Scholarship Foundation wants to fund 100 disadvantaged Black British students through UK Universities in the next decade.

Education and knowledge have the power to transform a person’s life.

Access to university should not be limited by race or social class, unfortunately this is not the case for all in our society. While many issues are at play in why more Black students do not enter our Universities – the Cowrie Scholarship Foundation seeks to address one part of the jigsaw- the financial cost of university education.

Your support of the Cowrie Scholarship Foundation will transform the lives of 100 Black students and to start this transformation, our target is £500,000.

Your money will equip the next generation of young Black individuals with the education to make a difference in their lives, our lives and the world.
