100 Women DBA Scholarship Program

The 100 WOMEN DBA college scholarships are awarded annually and provide a financial boost to five scholars. Three young women of color graduating from Hancock County high schools (Hancock, Bay and Home High School) are each awarded $1500, and two students receive scholarships in memory of Elena Marie Lorenza Lucore, each in the amount of $500. 

The African American community in Bay Saint Louis has contributed to the architecture, building, all industry, small business, art, food and music since its inception. Young women of color have historically been disproportionately shut out of generational wealth. The 100 WOMEN DBA scholarship targets young women of color who might not have access to full scholarships or family resources for their college education.

Students fill out an application online and have a teacher or counselor write a letter of recommendation. The 100 WOMEN DBA's scholarship committee will evaluate each application based on a quantitative as well as qualitative basis. The winners will be announced during each school's end of year award ceremony. The deadline for application is last day of February of the scholarship year.
