Donna M. Moore Scholarship

The National Association of Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment, Inc. (NABFEME) is proud to make available the Donna M. Moore Scholarship Fund.

NABFEME, a non-profit professional referral, networking, empowerment, and support group for women of color in entertainment,  is dedicated to developing the next generation of leadership women. Our educational programs and services are designed to provide students with the tools and resources they need to succeed in attaining a higher education and become tomorrow’s leaders. With education and career advancement being among the primary focuses of the organization, we believe in order to advance, one must learn. We further believe there is no better way to express our desire to promote advancement through education than to award a college student with funds to nourish their need to learn
