According to a report from Demos, African American students borrow money more often to complete their bachelor’s degree at a public college than whites. Around 84% of African American graduates used Pell Grants to finance their education and only 60% of white students did the same. Additionally, nearly one in four black borrowers drops out of college, leaving them both in debt and without a degree. Obtaining financial aid can also be challenging. According to a study in The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, whites are more likely to receive merit-based scholarships, even after accounting for different enrollment rates between the demographics.

These statistics underline the importance of African American scholarships. These awards can help offset the cost of a college education, and leave students less dependent on loans. They also offer African Americans a unique opportunity to pursue financial aid without any strings attached, and without any racial biases favoring another demographic, intentionally or otherwise.

According to the Institute for College Access and Success, 69% of students—that’s 7 in 10 seniors—accrued an average of $28,400 in student loan debt in 2013. Federal loans generally place students on a 10-year repayment track; however, it can take up to 20 years to pay off the debt. Steep interest rates often lead to higher than expected monthly payments, and attempting to stay on the 10-year track can set students back substantially each month. As a prospective computer science student, it’s easy to assume financing your degree will require mountains of debt.

Fortunately, the field of computer science continues to rapidly expand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, software developer positions alone will grow 22% by 2022. This demand has created ample scholarship opportunities for computer science majors —and these could cover most or even all of your tuition.
