image of studentThe Village Scholarship brings together donors who want to help increase the number of students of Black, African ancestry at Notre Dame in an effort to expand the mosaic of diverse perspectives. Our inclusive and diverse student population is the fabric which amplifies social justice, awareness and advocacy for all.   Each member of the “Village” pledges to a monthly gift of $45 over four years for a total donation of $2,160.  One-time donations of any amount are also welcome. 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.
