Jeannette Henderson, a former Albany Housing Authority employee, was inspired to create a fund to provide college scholarships to students living in public housing. 

The application process for the 2020-21 is currently closed. 

We look forward to celebrating our new and renewing scholar recipients at our Annual Ceremony to be announced at a later date.
