The UNITY Scholarship Recognition Reception was held in June at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Evanston, where 16 Black community organizations presented scholarships to 50 students, pictured above, all of whom are committed to continuing their education beyond high school. Evanston Township High School Black honor roll students were also recognized at the UNITY reception.

Since its initial scholarship tea in 1985, UNITY has, through its member organizations, awarded over a million dollars in scholarships to high school seniors and continuing college students.
