Bakari Henderson Memorial Scholarship Fund

Bakari Henderson Memorial Scholarship Fund

Bakari was an outstanding person and scholar with a promising future. He was selected as one of the recipients of a scholarship from the National Black MBA Association® to participate in the prestigious CEIBS (China Europe International Business School) program,  the world’s largest EMBA program. Bakari graduated in May of 2017 from the University of Arizona, Eller College of Management, Honors College with a degree in Finance and Entrepreneurship. He was a bright young man who excelled in school receiving several honors for his accomplishments. Bakari had dreams of building his own business empire and had recently developed his own clothing line before his untimely departure.

This educational scholarship fund honors the memory of Bakari by awarding a student(s) with financial support to participate in a study abroad program while attending a 4 year college.  The first scholarship(s) award will be announced in 2018 and awarded annually thereafter. We honor Bakari Henderson and his passion for living the fullest life and seeking every educational opportunity afforded to him.
