The Black Alumni of Notre Dame, honoring the memory of our first graduate, Mr. Frazier Thompson ’47, began awarding $2,500 towards the student accounts of two undergraduate students in 1999. Since then, the financial commitment of alumni has generated revenue to permit the awarding of up to $5,000 per recipient for the 2012-2013 academic year. The goal of this scholarship has been to reduce the financial burden of seniors who have consistently demonstrated academic excellence, all the while contributing to the greater African American and Notre Dame communities. This year, the esteemed recipients are as follows.
Delvin Anes of Waterbury, CT — Majoring in Accounting & Japanese
