Through the Blackburn Institute’s Daniel Community Scholars Program, The Daniel Foundation of Alabama funds Blackburn student projects to address the needs of Alabama communities. The new class of students has one project funded each year and there are opportunities for additional project funding for returning students and Fellows.
Examples of previous projects include the formation of an after-school reading program for at-risk children, the implementation of the first high school debate team in Tuscaloosa, the creation of an organization uniting interfaith as well as interdenominational ministers in the area to address healthcare concerns, the development of Hispanic JumpStart within Tuscaloosa, the implementation of peer mediation within Holt High School, and several programs related to tornado relief.
