The Ryan Nicole Falconer Scholarship
The Ryan Nicole Falconer Scholarship was established in 2020 in honor of:
Ms. Ryan Nicole Falconer
(May 11, 2002 - October 27, 2020)
As a senior during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ryan was a proud 2020 graduate of Woodward Academy and graduated out of the Atlanta Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. She was a freshman at Howard University and was eagerly looking forward to having the full on-campus experience. Although she was not able to completely fulfill her dream, we have established this scholarship fund to provide support for other bright stars to attend an HBCU and also honor her memory.
The Ryan Nicole Falconer Scholarship consists of a housing stipend to be used by any student attending an HBCU.
The stipend amount is $500 per month for four years, totaling $24,000.
