The Village Scholarship is a circle of 40 donors who want to take an active role in ensuring that an increasing number of Black voices and stories will be included in the Notre Dame student body.  Each member of the “village” pledges to a monthly gift of $45 over four years for a total donation of $2,160.  The Village Scholarship provides an all-inclusive, four-year scholarship for a young woman of Black, African ancestry with financial need to attend Notre Dame.
