About the Lloyd Trotter Scholarship: Since its inception in 1995, the Lloyd Trotter Scholarship has generated more than $1.88M, raised by GE employees, our community partners and families. This scholarship fund has been essential in helping to make the college dream a reality for deserving and talented students. Our 2015 Houston-wide campaign generated $50k, and the GE-wide campaign generated over $100k, exceeding $200k with GE Matching Gifts. The company’s 2015 contributions enabled 40 GE interns to receive scholarships across GE business nationwide. We are excited about this year’s campaign and our 4 “You” Fest, which will allow us to continue to support scholarships. Here’s how you can help: If you are a business owner with a product or a service that fits into one of the 4 categories of the 4 “You” Fest, and you are looking for a way to promote your brand, then this is your opportunity.  You can make a significant contribution while advertising your product and/or services to the AAF organization.
