        The Cincinnati branch of the NAACP today will announce creation of a $100,000 scholarship program for young black people.

        Beginning this year, the Milton W. Hinton Future Leaders Scholarship Fund — for a period of five years — will award eight scholarship grants worth $2,500 annually.

        “The NAACP expects a return on our investment, and we are supremely confident that it will yield great dividends,” said Moss White, chairman of the scholarship fund.

        African-Americans are eligible if they are:

        • Graduating seniors enrolled in a high school in Hamilton County.

        • College students who are residents of Hamilton County.

        • Students enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited two- or -four-year college or university in Hamilton County.

        • Students who are members of either the Cincinnati Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Cincinnati Branch of the NAACP Youth Council or the Cincinnati NAACP branch college chapter.

        Mr. Hinton is a retired University of Cincinnati provost who has led the local NAACP chapter since 1994.

        Interested candidates are encouraged to call the Cincinnati NAACP at 281-1900 to receive an application through the mail. All applications must be returned to the NAACP by April 18.
