Black Educator Pipeline

The Black Educator Pipeline is a pathway program designed to support, guide, and mentor Black students in their journey to becoming a Black educator preschool through college.


BLU Educational Foundation’s mission for the Black Educator Pipeline program is to change the narrative surrounding the educational field and increasing awareness about the opportunities for Black educators.



College affordability has proven to be one of the biggest barriers to attaining a degree, particularly for low-income students and students of color. To combat these disparities,  BLU Educational Foundation makes a concerted effort to give students the opportunity to receive a scholarship as well as the resources to attaining more funds for college.

Deadline to apply is June 3rd
