“The Fannie B. Bailey Memorial Scholarship Foundation has long supported and been around since I was young. They have always provided great resources and opportunities to help further my education. Having constant support is very beneficial while pursuing your education/career, because sometimes things can be challenging.

I look forward to maintaining my relationship with the foundation & helping future students/graduates along the way.”

University of Southern California

Masters of Science Degree in Journalism

“The Fannie B. Bailey Memorial Scholarship was very helpful to me as it provided much needed funds for when I had to buy books and school supplies. When random fees popped up, the scholarship money helped me pay them off. Their annual programs were also extremely uplifting. When going through the stressful rigors of college learning, it was good to know that this organization was here to support me.

It was also great to see other beneficiaries of the scholarship come back and share their stories and wisdom during these programs. Thank you for all the hard work in keeping this foundation going!

Thank you!”

The Fannie B. Bailey Memorial Scholarship Foundation has helped me tremendously while I pursued my undergraduate degree. Fannie’s selfless dedication to educate and care for others supported me in pursuing my goals. Receiving this scholarship provided me with the support I needed to pay for unexpected costs during my undergraduate career. As an avid believer in higher education, I continued my education and received my MBA in one year. I am so grateful to the Fannie B.

Aieshea Banks

California State University, Fullerton

2001 – B.A. - Communicative Disorders

2003 – M.A. Communicative Disorders

Currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Science

“As the Great-Great-Granddaughter of Fannie B Bailey, I was taught the value of education from a young age. Attending college was always a dream of mine. It became a reality when I was accepted into California State University, Fullerton in my senior year of high school.

Attending college was new, exciting, a bit scary, and expensive. I was immediately encouraged by the members of the Fannie B Bailey Scholarship Foundation to apply for the scholarship. I used my scholarship funds to pay for books and other school supplies to assist me with my success.

Beyond the financial support, the Fannie B Bailey Scholarship Foundation provided many words of encouragement and numerous prayers of success. I applied for the scholarship funds and received the support, encouragement, and prayers throughout my journey as an undergraduate and graduate student.

In 2003, I received a Masters of Arts degree in Communicative Disorders. I began my career as a Speech-Language Pathologist where I provided assessment and intervention services to children and adolescents who have challenges with their communication skills.

Throughout my career, I have worked with children as young as 18 months old through adults with wisdom that expands to 99 years within the public schools, charter schools, private practice, and skilled nursing home settings. I enjoy going to middle schools and high schools to educate them on this career option to encourage more diversity within this profession.

I have mentored and supervised several student clinicians preparing them for their role as a professional SLP. Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Science where I am researching the social communication of Autistic Adults. I do not know how God will use me next in my journey, but I pray that he will continue to provide me with the heart of service.

During my academic journey, I always knew that I had a tribe of prayer warriors that helped to get through it all. I whole-heartedly believe that the prayers, encouragement, and financial support from the Fannie B Bailey Scholarship Foundation contributed to my success and overall well-being. I am beyond grateful for this foundation and God’s grace during my journey.”
