Harvey Lincoln Student Scholarship

The Harvey Lincoln Student Scholarship Fund is a need-based scholarship for community college students in Achieving the Dream institutions who have persisted in their studies despite educational, personal, or financial obstacles.

The Scholarship honors the contributions to student success of Harvey Lincoln, a champion for students from low-income backgrounds and students of color. Harvey spent much of his life advocating for students, including volunteering for many of our Achieving the Dream activities. We want to ensure that his passion for ensuring that all students have the opportunity to pursue their educational dreams continues on, through a scholarship in his name.

Harvey, whom we lost in 2016, was married to ATD’s long-serving Senior Vice President Carol Lincoln. We are honoring his legacy by providing scholarship opportunities to hard working, courageous students.

“Harvey was ATD’s most ardent and avid ‘volunteer’ with a quick wit, ready smile, and a helping hand for so many people throughout the organization and our extended ATD family.” - Achieving the Dream President and CEO Dr. Karen A. Stout

Harvey was, in every sense of the word, a true supporter and advocate of Achieving the Dream’s mission and goals.

Students can be nominated by staff, a faculty member, or an administrator at their college.
