Reward Integrity, Service, and Education (RISE) Scholarship

CommunityForward and TISTA Science and Technology Corporation (TISTA) are proud to announce the launch of our 2nd Annual RISE Scholarship, after a highly successful launch in Fall of 2021! The “Rewarding Integrity, Service, and Education (RISE) Scholarship” is a TISTA-sponsored and merit-based scholarship, available annually, to current Historically Black University and College (HBCU) students. This scholarship promotes and encourages qualified and exceptional undergraduate students to pursue their education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) or Health-Care fields. 

The mission of the RISE Scholarship is to help transform the promise of racial and gender equality into a reality, by supporting talented undergraduate students with financial need; RISE aims to help students stay in school and successfully complete a full-term towards their bachelor’s degree.
