Beacon of Light Foundation™ is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. It was created in 2007 by Theta Epsilon Sigma to provide substantial scholarship awards to exceptional female high school seniors for study at a four year accredited college or university of their choice.
Each Spring, local high schools are encouraged to promote the Beacon of Light Foundation™ scholarship opportunity to their senior class. Eligible students must complete an application, a writing sample, provide official transcripts, letters of recommendation and a college acceptance letter. The applications are reviewed by the scholarship committee. Scholarships are awarded at our annual scholarship luncheon.
Starting in Fall 2019, Beacon of Light Foundation™ will launch a second scholarship for continuing college women, the Erika D. Jackson Memorial Scholarship, in honor of a dedicated Sigma Gamma Rho Soror who passed away in 2012. Applications are due December 15th, and awarded in January.
Each June, Beacon of Light Foundation™ hosts an annual scholarship and awards luncheon to showcase the achievements of young women and local community leaders committed to education. In addition, our other events include Cinema 22, a celebration of African-Americans in film, and a semi-annual Sip & Shop fundraiser, in conjunction with All That & More boutique, an African-American woman owned clothing store located in Culver City. Since its inception, Beacon of Light Foundation™ has awarded more than twenty thousand ($20,000) dollars in scholarships to local female high school graduates for college expenses.
