DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

  1. Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the legitimate goals of his life.”
     
  2. “To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education.”
     
  3. “A great majority of the so-called educated people do not think logically and scientifically. Even the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us objective and unbiased truths.”
  4. “Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.”
     
  5. “The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.”
     
  6. “The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate.”
  1. “[E]ducation which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.”
     
  2. “Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.”

Proceeds from fund-raising activities and donations are used to provide college scholarships.

The Committee is a 501(c)(3) organization.

The goal of this Scholarship Fund is to help students who are members of racial or ethnic minorities, underrepresented in American colleges and universities, achieve the dream of a higher education. The Scholarship Fund seeks out students who show financial need and academic promise, and who have overcome obstacles and contributed to their community. This community’s strong support of the recipients is one of the most unique and important attributes of the scholarship.

In furtherance of the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Committee awards college scholarships to deserving students  who might not otherwise achieve their dream of a college education. We seek out and give highest consideration to young people who show financial need, have overcome obstacles, have worked to improve their communities and who might be overlooked by traditional scholarships.
