35th Scholarship Fund Anniversary Dinner

35th Scholarship Fund Anniversary Dinner

The National Association of Black Suppliers Scholarship Fund would like to say thank you to everyone who came out on July 20, 2023, to celebrate our 35th Anniversary Dinner and After Glow (two events in one).

This is one of our premier events. We came together to honor the 7 ambitious high school seniors listed below.

This year’s theme was “Direction, Democracy and Diversity —A Transformational Force”. Our theme spoke towards a state of equality and involvement that empowers our scholars to excel and lead.

Thank you again to all Sponsors for both the 35th Anniversary Dinner and Float Your Boat After Glow: General Motors, Detroit Chassis, LLC, Ford Motor Company, Stellantis, JMA Global, LLC, DTE Foundation, Flex-N-Gate, The John A. James Foundation, Piston Group, and many others.

The Scholarship Fund promotes educational opportunities for African American youth. We have provided over $2.3 million in scholarships to over 200 outstanding and deserving high school students since 2000 with a 95% graduation rate. 90% of NABSSF Scholars are from low to moderate family incomes from southeastern Michigan, surrounding areas and around the Country.
