About the Scholarship...

Native Sons Literacy is proud to announce the Native Sons Literacy Power and Potential Scholarship, a new, annual award granted to young people about to enroll in college. This scholarship was established by Keith LaMar in 2023. We have finished accepting applications for the 2023-2024 academic year. We will re-open the application season March 1, 2024.


We here at Native Sons believe that what we project and reflect to the universe will be returned to us, therefore this essay provides an opportunity to declare yourself in the form of a personal mission statement. Please tell us what you intend to do with your power and potential to make the world a better place. There are no losers in this exercise! All you need do is speak / write from your heart, and the universe will respond. Declare yourself now before you embark!


Godspeed on your journey, 

~~Keith LaMar, scholarship chairperson
