Aim High Scholarship Program
It is no secret that the number of African-American males on college campuses continues to be lower than others. The Asfaw Family Foundation International (AFFI) is working to do something about it. The “Aim High” scholarship program was established by AFFI to help increase the number of African American males enrolled in colleges and universities.
To be an eligible candidate for the scholarship, students must: be a Colorado resident; an African-American male high school senior; have a grade point average of at least 2.5; be involved in the community; demonstrate financial need; and have a career goal to make a difference in the quality of life for others and his community.

"My name is Tyrone R. Holt. I am a sophomore at Colorado State University-Pueblo majoring in Biology and a minor in Anthropology. School has been a successful experience so far and I am looking forward to the remainder of the school year. The Aim High Scholarship was very beneficial to me because it helped ease the worries of my financial hardships and gave me motivation to succeed in school since I knew they believed in me enough to award me with the scholarship. Congratulations to all of the new recipients of the Aim High Scholarship. Remember to stay focus towards your goals because anything you apply yourself to is possible! I hope your years in college will be as rewarding as my years have been so far. Good Luck and remember to aim high!"
