About Us


Black Excellence Education Foundation (B.E.E.F) envisions a society in which education is available to every student, regardless of financial status or societal class. Our organization provides access to vocational and higher education through scholarships for African Americans. We offer a sense of certainty and reliability to college students in under-served communities or who face financial misfortune. It is essential that the parents of African American college students are not left in financial distress for their children to attend college or trade school in the United States.

Our goal is to uplift the African American community by making education financially attainable for Black scholars. We encourage students to earn an education so they can overcome adversity, take pride in the Black community, and excel as a qualified professional. By providing scholarships for African Americans and the financial support students need to thrive academically, we can raise a new generation of citizens with fulfilling careers, ready to enrich our nation.
