The scholarships are part of a partnership between Lexus and ten Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). A total of 19 students will receive them.
“In alignment with the Lexus Pursuit of Potential initiative to support our youth, we are proud of the work these scholarship recipients are doing in school and in their communities,” said Brian Smith, Lexus vice president, marketing. “These HBCU student leaders have the tools to succeed and we expect they'll do great things for society in the future.”
The “Verses and Flow” Scholarships are named after the “Versus and Flow” program on TV One, which features poetry, spoken word and music.
