The Greater Augusta HBCU Alumni Alliance was organized as a Non-profit organization in 2013.  Our purpose is to promote a greater awareness of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the community and encourage high school students to attend an HBCU upon graduation.  We have awarded $12,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors planning to attend an HBCU.  We also sponsor an HBCU college fairs and a health fair each year.  Operating and scholarship funds are generated from an annual 5K race and donations.
