Fairy Dust Scholarship Program looking for applicants

Simone Gordon and The Black Fairy Godmother Foundation announce 2022 Fairy Dust Scholarship Program – in honor of Women’s History Month.

Deadline for applications: April 15, 2022.

Founder and CEO Simone Gordon and The Black Fairy Godmother Foundation has announced the 2022 Fairy Dust Scholarship Program. Through the scholarship program, single marginalized mothers are able to attend community college, obtain a license or certificate in the trade of their choice, or complete a GED program. Scholarships are awarded on Mother’s Day each year.

Simone Gordon says that with the scholarship program, “We are showing women that there is life after trauma. For many women, it is a dream of a lifetime.”

To make the scholarship possible, The Foundation invites any willing supporter to donate to the scholarship – Simone adds, “In honor of National Women’s Month, we ask for support to raise awareness and funds to help this worthy cause of empowering women who seek education and who are preparing to better support their families.”

If you would like to apply for the scholarship, go to and fill out the application by April 15, 2022. Recipients will be announced on Mother’s Day 2022.

Simone created the “Fairy Dust Scholarship” with sponsor Tory Burch to make sure women, including Simone, completed their college education without the stress of financing. In one year of the project’s launching, some 20 women have been given scholarships. Some 16 are focusing on trades, and two are in still in college. This year, two are graduating with their Associate’s degrees and one of them has already been accepted to Spellman College in Atlanta.

The Black Fairy Godmother Foundation, founded by Simone Gordon, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to help Black and brown marginalized families. Our foundation uses the power of networking, social media, and influence to connect families in need with people that can help.

We have a variety of programs to meet the needs of those who need assistance. Our goal is to not only provide relief but help them to get to a place of stability and equip them with the proper tools and support so they may sustain themselves going forward.
