John Riche Scholarship

In 2005, the Committee of 100 etablished a John R. Riche Scholarship program to recognize outstanding young African-American leaders in our community who possess the qualities of leadership, commitment to community service, and respect for diversity evidenced by the late John Riche, one of our founding members.

Scholarship recipients are invited each year to join at a reduced membership fee for two years. John Riche Scholarship recipients attend all meetings of the Committee of 100 and receive mentoring from individual members.
