Every student has a slightly different educational journey, with experiences that are uniquely personal to their situation.

Because of this, many students don’t take what is considered to be a traditional educational route. Not everyone is accepted to the schools they wish to attend. Not everyone knows what their future is going to look like. The STAR Scholarship - Students Taking Alternative Routes seeks to help students who face the overwhelming challenge of taking non-traditional paths to earning their education. It is important to give these students the support and resources they need in order for them to be successful. 

BIPOC high school seniors, undergraduate, trade school, or graduate students are eligible to apply if they are taking a less traditional educational route or come from disadvantaged inner city areas. In a video or essay response, explain what career path are you interested in pursuing and how do you see this changing your life trajectory?
