Mitchell: In wake of ad, Toyota scholarships honoring Rev. Jesse Jackson

In 2008, Toyota agreed to spend $8 billion over 10 years to increase minority participation in the company.

Last week, the Japanese auto maker joined forces with the civil rights group to announce it would provide the "first-ever" $75,000 scholarships named in honor of Jesse L. Jackson Sr.

Ten incredibly talented students majoring in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math — were selected from hundreds of applicants. The students will receive the $25,000 renewable scholarship each year for three years and must maintain a GPA of 3.0.
