“Politics, life and business are not spectatorsports. You have to get involved toget ahead. Most importantly, when youreach that level of success, keepthe door open and the ladder down forothers to follow.”
—Ronald H. Brown
Our History
Established in 1996 by the CAP Charitable Foundation, the Ron Brown Scholar Program began awarding college scholar-ships to outstanding African American students to honor the legacy of service of the late Secretary of Commerce Ronald H.Brown. As the rst African American to serve in the cabinet as Secretary of Commerce and the rst to serve as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Ron Brown was a gure of global prominence, respected for his intelligence, politicalsavvy and leadership. In April of 1996, he died in a tragic plane crash during a trade mission to Eastern Europe. Since 1996,the Ron Brown Scholar Program has evolved to provide Scholars with more than just academic opportunities, fostering boththe strong commitment of service and dedication to future leadership that Ron Brown helped embody.The Ron Brown Scholar Program provides Scholars with the nancial resources to attend some of the nest colleges anduniversities in the country. Upon acceptance, Scholars are each awarded $40,000 ($10,000 per year for 4 years) that maybe used at the college or university of their choice. Acceptance into the Program means Scholars are also provided with thenurturing and mentorship to succeed and ourish in college and beyond.
