MOTG Foundation Scholarship Fund

The Manhood On The Go Scholarship Fund is committed to providing educational scholarship opportunities for young men who aspire to improve their lives and their communities. In three years, we have awarded more than $30,000 in scholars to over 40+ deserving scholars at primarily Florida A&M University. Our educational scholarships are provided as individual grants. The grant can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books, lab fees, travel and select costs of living. All MOTG Scholars are required to “give back” by conducting community service and by serving as mentors to younger, aspiring MOTG Scholars.

Population(s) Served

The MOTG Youth Leadership Academy will develop driven young men (ages 8-17) through teaching academic and career readiness skills, building community connections, giving needed guidance, and providing progressive opportunities they need to become responsible leaders within our community who reach their full potential.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Let's face the facts:
If our young men do not prepare for college and career options early, their chances of rising economically are vastly decreased.

We believe the solution to this problem is simple:
To educate our young men on the realities of life. Whether the topic is financial management, how to properly change a car tire or dealing with the pressures of growing up, we utilize a peer-focused support structure to speak to the realities of life and find a collective strategy to conquer any problem they may encounter.

Life is as easy as you make it. It becomes MUCH easier when you develop life skills that are transferrable to all scenarios you may encounter during your journey. MOTG is constantly working with community partners and stakeholders who share our passion of sharpening brilliant young minds to become the best version of themselves.
