Welcome To The

GREG BUSH, JR. FOUNDATION

PURPOSE STATEMENT

The Greg Bush, Jr. Foundation, Inc. was founded to provide mentoring and scholarship to African American high school students who endeavor to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math, i.e., S.T.E.A.M. careers. The Greg Bush, Jr. foundation will seek to improve African American participation in S.T.E.A.M. higher-education and motivate our future Black leaders by providing structured learning activities to develop literacy and innovation with a focus on entrepreneurship.

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES

  • Intentional – Purposefully target African-American youth with S.T.E.A.M. career aspirations to empower them with the tools to overcome systemic exclusion.

  • Guidance – Encourage African-American students to pursue careers in S.T.E.A.M.
  • Innovation – New ideas that create change and disruption make the world-go-around. African-Americans built America and our innovation is the route of civilization.
  • Tenacity – We must see goals through to success. Anything worth doing won’t be easy.
  • Economic Empowerment – The Black Dollar is power and Black-owned S.T.E.A.M. business is the key to remedying economic inequalities.
  • Scholarship – Through scholarship, The Greg Bush, Jr. Foundation will do its part to help create the African-American leaders of tomorrow.

Our Mentoring Program

Our Mentoring Program will be offered virtually due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Students are selected on a first come, first served basis, and a wait list will be maintained. Selected students will be expected to participate in scheduled meetings to receive the recommendation letter and certificate of participation. Our mentoring program participation application is below. The student’s high school counselor must write a letter of recommendation which is required at the time of application for enrollment in the program.
