The Orange Vaughn Jones Collegiate Scholarship was established in 2015 by Knicole Mosby-Taylor, co-founder and director of Empowering Minds of Maryland’s Youth (EMMY) and Board Members to provide assistance with college funding for the youth of EMMY and Baltimore. The Orange Vaughn Jones Collegiate Scholarship was developed in honor of Baltimore citizens who were strategic and dedicated to the empowerment of youth in the community: Eunice Orange, Sharon Vaughn and Mary A. Jones.

The purpose of the Annual Orange Vaughn Jones Scholarship Gala is twofold. First, to recognize and honor people with the Guiding Light Award​ who have made a difference in the community, specifically to empower and improve the lives of Baltimore youth.
Second, to assist with providing college funding for a former EMMY Mentee.
