PBG D.R.E.A.M. Scholarship Awards
The Pretty Brown Girl Foundation seeks to lessen this burden by providing girls of color scholarships who are looking to attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s). Our scholarships range from $2,000-$10,000 or more.
“For Black and Brown students, many are coming from households that may not have the same financial support that white students are receiving. Even for middle class families, it is a tremendous area of stress as the cost of college is rising every year,” says Sheri Crawley, Founder of Pretty Brown Girl. “Most HBCUs are land-grant institutions and represent some of the oldest institutions of higher education operating in the United States. Being accepted as an HBCU is a great honor, but there are several aspects to pursuing a collegiate-level education that can act as roadblocks for potential students.”

International Pretty Brown Girl Day
Annually, The Pretty Brown Girl Foundation honors its anniversary with ”International Pretty Brown Girl Day” with a daylong celebration of engagement, development and empowerment for Black and Brown girls. Each year, hundreds of girls join together to kick of the new “PBG” year announcing our annual theme, our program areas of focus and first look into our events for the year.
Pretty Brown Girl Day takes place each year on the fourth Saturday of February during Black History Month. This is a day of camaraderie, for girls of all ages to have fun, bond with others and reflect on their inner beauty. Annually, we choose a theme that supports the learning and empowerment of Black and Brown girls across the globe.
Due to the current pandemic, our next main stage event is tentatively scheduled for February 2022. Click the button below for more information and how to become a Sponsor for Pretty Brown Girl Day!
