The College Bound Brotherhood 2.0 goal is to reach 500 African American young men, in the 2012-2013 Academic Year who are college-bound seniors in order to support their successful transition to college. The Brotherhood's mid-range goal is to support the persistence and degree attainment of this initial class and many more graduating classes to follow by developing a robust pipeline of African American young men who are college ready, enrolled and attaining college degrees. Long-term the Brotherhood has the potential to serve as a vital field building movement to ensure accountability and excellence in college preparedness and equitable access to quality education for Black young men.

The College Bound Brotherhood 2.0 has $150,000 in scholarship funds available exclusively for African American young men attending high school throughout the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties. In order to gain access to these resources, an African American young man must participate in the programming offered by a Brotherhood member agency and all eligible young men will have to complete the FAFSA or Dream Act Application and have their Cal Grant GPA uploaded to the California Student Aid Commission by the March 2, 2013 priority deadline.

There will be awards of $1,500 for students attending community colleges and awards of up to $3,500 for students attending four-year colleges in the fall. The scholarship awards are intended for the first year of college, Academic Year 2013-14.
