Black Alumni Association (BAA)

Formed in 1984, the Black Alumni Association celebrates the accomplishments of SLU’s black alumni and students through fundraising, mentoring and fostering outreach and awareness. BAA also raises funds to support the Celerstine Johnson Book Fund and Pioneers of Inclusion Scholarship. Both scholarships qualify for SLU’s Go Further Scholarship Matching Initiative, so gifts of $100 or more to either are matched dollar for dollar.


The Pioneers of Inclusion Endowed Scholarship recognizes the strength and courage of the men and women who became the first black students at the University, particularly during 1944. It honors their legacy by supporting high-achieving, first-generation college students from historically underrepresented populations in U. S. higher education. 


For more than three decades, Dr. Celerstine Johnson was dedicated to enhancing educational opportunities for students, especially those underrepresented in higher education. The Celerstine Johnson Book Scholarship is open to full-time undergraduate students, any major, enrolled in good standing in one of the Trio Programs. 


Both scholarships are participating in today's Battle of the Scholarships. Whichever undergraduate scholarship brings in the most money by the end of the day will have its giving total matched dollar for dollar by the University's Go Further initiative.
