The awards were established to honor outstanding African  American students. These students have excelled in the area that which Robeson gained prominence – scholarship, the arts, community service, and athletics. 

The institute was founded in 1999 to preserve Paul Robeson’s legacy in the area where he came of age as an artist, athlete, orator, and scholar. The Institute envisions a global community of diverse cultures that embody, through attitudes and behaviors, Paul Robeson’s ideals, beliefs,  values, and vision for a world of justice and peace.
