The FOR THE LOVE OF BLACK GIRLS™ Scholarship Fund is a need-based and academic-based award offered by the Uniquely You Summit to alleviate financial burdens for Black girls as they continue their education.

Shaleah Laché Sutton founded the institution in 2009 and initiated the Uniquely You Summit for Girls, a one-of-a-kind yearly platform in the larger Philadelphia region where a lot of Black girls between 11 to 18 take part in the conversation.

Shaleah has continued to broaden her dedication to Black girls by developing new channels, such as Conversations #ForTheLoveOfBlackGirls, which are peer-led for high school girls. They analyze the social and political imbalances that genuinely impact their households, neighborhoods, and education institutions using their voices.

The cohort’s mission is to support black girls in becoming involved, committed, as well as impactful free thinkers who can change not just their neighborhood, but the globe. The #WhatIKnowNow fundraising activity episode, which includes worthy-of-note representatives such as Deesha Dyer and Sheryl Lee Ralph, evaluates issues concerning the Black woman’s way of life.
