The Venus Morris Griffin Scholarship Fund awards rising students who have at least one parent who is incarcerated. The scholarships are awarded annually to students who are doing everything right, but due to no fault of their own have had to face the challenge of rising above adversity.

Recipients of this scholarship are chosen by Venus’ children, who themselves have experienced life with a parent incarcerated. This scholarship is funded entirely by proceeds from Venus’ speaking engagements, and by donations from generous supporters.


To apply for the scholarship, please fill out the form below and send a cover letter with your story of overcoming adversity due to parental incarceration to [email protected]
