Since 2017, The Prince Jones, Jr. Foundation has been dedicated to providing annual scholarships for students of the African Diaspora. Our goal is to increase access to education and decrease barriers to pursuing higher education. Prince Jones, Jr. was pursuing his bachelor's degree in Human Development at Howard University when he was killed by a police officer.

The Prince Jones, Jr. Foundation believes that we must financially support students, educate ourselves; and we must never forget our past nor the challenges that confront us in society. Lastly, we must never forget Prince Jones, Jr., and so many others whose lives have been taken unjustly.


The Prince Jones, Jr. Foundation provides scholarships to students of the African Diaspora from seven states (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Northern Virginia, Louisiana, and Texas) and Washington, D.C. in three categories :
