Yesterday at an event celebrating the life of Brandon Hendricks, the Bronx Rising Initiative awarded 10 young women headed to college the Brandon Hendricks Scholarship, a $5,000 scholarship for their studies.

The announcement of the winners came after a street co-naming in honor of Brandon Hendricks, a rising star from our community that was killed by senseless gun violence on June 29, 2020. Brandon was a consistent source of hope and inspiration for everyone that knew him and, before his passing, had recently been accepted to college with a full scholarship. The announcement of winners and the street co-naming took place on July 7, Brandon's birthday.

BRI's Brandon Hendricks Scholarship was launched last year in partnership with his family and exists to honor his memory and uplift his peers. This year's winners are:
