In 2020, Peanuts Worldwide and Native Tongue Communications partnered to create “The Armstrong Project,” a four-year named endowed scholarship, which will designate one student at each of two selected Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as the recipient of an annual, non-renewable $10,000 scholarship, corporate mentorship, and possible internship opportunity in animation and related fields. Funded upfront for endowment status at $100,000, the Project launched in 2021, for the 2022 - 2023 school year with students at Howard and Hampton University.
