Amanda Higgins Fund
Amanda Higgins was a brilliant young African American woman who had a strong commitment to the mental health, academic achievement, and well-being of young people. She had an intimate understanding of mental health challenges and the failure of the Western medical system to really help women of African descent heal and prosper in this society. Posthumously, she was awarded her MA in higher education and student affairs from the University of Connecticut. The Amanda Higgins Fund Research Grant was established in her memory and focuses on the well-being of girls and women of African descent, with special focus on mental health and academic counseling.
