Georgetown University, in partnership with the Marineau Foundation and Roseti Family Foundation, provides a college immersion experience that prepares deserving students from the Cristo Rey and KIPP school networks, organizations that serve underprivileged, low-income, and diverse student populations, for college success. Students are typically first-generation college students.
The three-week program brings 44 students together each summer on main campus to take courses in International Relations, Biology, and College Writing with Georgetown professors, live in residence halls, explore Washington, D.C., and participate in college-prep workshops. The program is designed for students who have aspirations to apply to the most selective colleges and universities.
The award honors emerging leaders who have distinguished themselves through a record of creative leadership and public service, academic distinction, interdisciplinary problem solving, and experience addressing societal issues.
The faculty in Yale’s Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration (RITM) established the award to honor young leaders who, like Ebenezer Bassett in the 19th century, bring under-recognized perspectives to the public sphere, think deeply about our collective futures, and exemplify intelligence and courage as they work on behalf of others.

The Portland Public Schools Board of Education adopted a Racial Educational Equity Policy in June 2011. That policy is intended to acknowledge race and address race-based disparities in student achievement. Young, Gifted and Black is intended to tell a counterstory; namely, the experience of black students is not monolithic, as is often portrayed in mainstream media. Black students come from diverse backgrounds and have myriad experiences, but they have a shared identity as black people representing the African diaspora.
