Sacramento – The Sacramento Area Black Caucus, Inc. is now accepting applications for its annual Rosenwald “Robbie” Robertson Scholarships.

The scholarships, which bear the name of the late City Councilman and community leader, will be awarded this spring. The $500 scholarships are awarded to area students who best demonstrate the standards of academic achievement, leadership, and service to the African American community, all characteristics which Robertson exemplified.

Applicants must be recent high school graduates of a local school, graduates of a Sacramento area high school by the end of the spring term, 2014 or a continuing college student. Previous award recipients are eligible to apply. The deadline to apply is April 5. The awards will be made on May 3.
