Financial Support

Artishia and Frederick Jordan Scholarship

Howard University, through the Office of the Dean of the Chapel, is pleased to announce the availability of a scholarship, made possible through the Artishia and Frederick Jordan Scholarship Fund. Students selected for the scholarship will be promising undergraduate students who reflect the ongoing purpose and mission of the Artishia and Frederick Jordan Scholarship Fund, which includes academic potential, good character, and community service.

Established in 1976 by Bishop Frederick Douglass Jordan in memory of his wife, a Howard alumnae Artishia Jordan, the scholarship has been awarded to over 1,000 students since 1976. Bishop and Mrs. Jordan both attended Howard University and were active members of student life in the early 1920s. They each demonstrated a firm commitment to education through graduate studies and Bishop Jordan served as the president of Western College and Campbell College.  

This scholarship is designed to encourage undergraduate students who are a part of campus religious life to gain support and assistance as they think critically about the intersection of faith, culture, and career. Eight scholarships which each total one full semester’s tuition (not including fees) will be awarded annually to undergraduate students at Howard University. It is intended to provide:  

  • Financial aid that will support the student’s ongoing enrollment.
  • Substantive opportunities for faith application through the work of the Chapel.
  • Supportive dialogue that will strengthen the student’s application of faith within academic, professional, and global contexts. 

We are now accepting 2024 - 2025 applications. All application components are due by Sunday, April 21, 2024. Contact the Office of the Dean of the Chapel to learn more about the scholarship fund. To learn more about previous Jordan Scholars please visit
