Since its inception in 2011, the GM Foundation has awarded $16.5 million to about 3,300 students; among these students, nearly one third are African American or Hispanic and more than 1,600 recipients are the first in their family to attend college.

Annually, Buick Achievers awards 100 qualifying students up to $25,000 per year for four years (up to five for qualified engineering programs).

Buick Achievers Oneisha Hall (Tuskegee University) and Ty’Quish Keyes (Morehouse College) attended the live taping of the UNCF An Evening of Stars broadcast, as well as the UNCF Empower Me Tour that was recently held at Morehouse College. Spelman College senior and Buick Achievers Scholarship recipient Nartezya Dykes will be honored during the live program slated to air on April 13, 2014.

To be eligible for the program, high school seniors and undergraduate students must be looking to obtain a college degree in science, technology, engineering, math, also known as STEM, or other fields related to the automotive industry.
