To The Aaron Bonner Foundation

We are delighted to welcome you to the Aaron Bonner Foundation website. We are especially proud of the way our Aaron Bonner Scholars have used the benefits of our Foundation to sculpt their own visions of success and accomplishments at Howard University and beyond. The Aaron Bonner Foundation (a public 501(c)3 charity) is designed to benefit academically-talented, highly motivated high school seniors who have demonstrated financial need, social commitment and leadership potential. AB Scholars are students whose records reveal leadership. Equally important, their backgrounds indicate strong social concern for their immediate or larger communities. They are young people who will use their success to help in meaningful ways both as members of their own communities and society as a whole. We invite you to peruse our website to learn more about our programs and be inspired by the accomplishments of our outstanding AB Scholars.
