Established in 2020

Eligibility: Incoming or existing college students who have experienced the loss of their mother and plan to attend an Historically Black College or University.  Preference will be given to students attending the Donor’s Alma Mater Florida A & M University and those whose mother is no longer living.


The Motherless Queen Scholarship Fund was established by Linda Hope who shared this: “I’d like to establish this scholarship to honor my mother’s value for education and to offer financial support to students that have experienced the loss of their mother. As a first-generation college graduate, it is important to me to help those who have experienced such a detrimental loss pursue higher education without the worry of additional debt. My hope is that the recipient of this scholarship feels the love and support from someone that has genuinely walked in their shoes.”
