ATLANTA, GEORGIA - The Aiken Foundation, an IRS tax-exempt 501(c)(3) Public Charity Nonprofit Organization, is pleased to announce the creation of The Aiken Foundation Student Access Fund, which is created to provide financial assistance to minority students with demonstrated financial need pursuing post-secondary education. The first educational institution that will benefit from this scholarship fund in the amount of $1,000.00 for the Fall 2021 semester is Morris Brown College, located at 643 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30314.
