Scholarship Application

Our Mission

The mission of the Urquhart Memorial Foundation is to contribute financial support for higher education to eligible African-American students accepted into undergraduate studies at 4 year colleges or universities in the state of Pennsylvania. Additionally, we will contribute to research programs dedicated to identifying cures for breast cancer and diabetes.






Medical researchers tell us...

Diabetes is one of the most serious health risks facing African-Americans. One in nine has the disease, and African-Americans are more likely to develop disabilities from diabetes than Caucasian-Americans.

United States statistics show...

One-third of African-American students at four year universities had an annual income of $20,000. Against these odds, African-American students continue to value a college education and prove themselves competitive, but your help is truly needed.
