DTLR, one of the country’s most successful lifestyle retailers with more than 240 stores in 19 states, recently announced the recipients of its first ever HBCU Scholarship Program. The scholarship awarded a total of $10,000 to five high school seniors from across the country who plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate program at an HBCU. Each scholarship recipient received $2,000 toward the 2021-2022 school year.

Students and Winston-Salem locals, Markell Lloyd and Faith Hawkins, are recipients of the DTLR HBCU scholarship. Markell plans to attend Johnson C. Smith University and Faith plans to attend Winston-Salem University.    

“DTLR is proud to award scholarships to students like Markell and Faith, whose hard work, dedication to community and commitment to their education has led them to pursue a higher education at an HBCU,” commented Tremayne Lipscomb, community outreach director at DTLR. “We are thrilled to be able to help the next generation of diverse thinkers and leaders attend college through this scholarship program.” 

To be considered for this scholarship, students must have a minimum grade point average of  2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent). Other considerations include academic performance, demonstrated leadership, and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of career and educational goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances and an online recommendation.
