Event Details


The Black Student Union held its first Scholarship Pageant in 1970 as a way to showcase, embrace, and celebrate African and African-American history and culture through student talents. Over the years, the Black Student Scholarship Pageant has transformed into a cultural avenue. The Pageant highlights outstanding Multi-cultural and Multi-ethnic Students that have gathered to uplift the Black community on campus and in the community. In addition, the Black Student Union Scholarship Pageant calls attention to the idea that Black history is American history.

The Scholarship Pageant focuses on giving the contestants a chance to grow and become their best selves.  It not only takes into account the contestant's talents and performance abilities but their entire experience and their ability to present their best selves confidently.  Although the Scholarship Pageant is a competition, we also focus on building community and friendships among each contestant and volunteer.  This Scholarship Pageant is a reminder that we are unified in our struggles. We are devoted to uplifting the voices of the African and African-American communities in efforts to promote positive change.

Please register by Nov. 6th at 4 p.m. to purchase your ticket. On the registration page, simply click the "Choose a Ticket Type" dropdown to select your purchases (pageant tickets, masks, t-shirts, raffle tickets, ad space and contestant sponsorships available).  The pageant will be held on Saturday, November 7th, at 7 p.m. EST. Digital pageant tickets with event link will be sent to attendees on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 7th.
