Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) has announced that it is launching a new scholarship for Morehouse College business and economics majors that will assist with paying for tuition and room and board. It is the first time PCNA has sponsored a college scholarship.

Ten such scholarships will be awarded to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who maintain a GPA of 3.3 or better. Beginning this spring, PCNA says it will also begin a virtual guest lecture series aimed to introduce Morehouse students to the auto industry.

“Porsche supports institutions that share our commitment to the connected goals of quality education and social equity,” says Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of PCNA. “Morehouse College is an acknowledged national model for developing the next generation of leaders, and a logical partner in our hometown of Atlanta."

“On behalf of Morehouse College, I would like to thank Porsche Cars North America for working with us to expand academic opportunities for our business students,” says David A. Thomas, President of Morehouse College. “Choosing Morehouse as the site of PCNA’s first college scholarship program shows that Porsche is committed to academic excellence and the development of leaders of color.”

Morehouse College is a historically black college for men, founded in 1867 and located in Atlanta.
