To promote the academic and professional development of immigrant youths in the Diaspora while recognizing immigrant professionals excelling in the Diaspora and by providing scholarships to students attending accredited U.S. colleges.
Education liberates. Liberia comes from the Latin word liber which means to liberate. Liberian Awards, Inc., an organization founded by a Liberian born immigrant, was created to promote education and excellence in youths.
Initially, the organization provided scholarships exclusively to Liberian college students attending U.S. colleges. In 2015, the organization expanded its scholarship program to first and second generation immigrants attending U.S. colleges. Liberian Awards, Inc. continues to honor Liberian Professionals excelling in the Diaspora as it did at the organization’s inception.
