Scholarships for White Males Only

February 28, 2011

A Texas State University student has founded a new group dedicated to raising money for scholarships for white males. The Former Majority Association for Equality says on its website that its goal is to "financially assist young Americans seeking higher education who lack opportunities in similar organizations that are based upon race or gender. In a country that proclaims equality for all, we provide monetary aid to those that have found the scholarship application process difficult because they do not fit into certain categories or any ethnic group." The group says that it will award five $500 scholarships on July 4. Colby Bohannan, the founder of the group, told The Austin American-Statesman that he noticed many scholarships for female or minority students, but none reserved for white men. "I felt excluded," he said. "If everyone else can find scholarships, why are we left out?"
