STEM

First-generation students are under significant pressure when it comes to pursuing higher education.

Many students come from families with limited financial means who have made great sacrifices to help them on their educational journey. As a result, many first-generation students are expected to succeed academically and professionally and to be a resource for family members after beginning their careers. The limited assistance and guidance that first-generation students receive can make it difficult to achieve these goals. 

This scholarship seeks to support underrepresented students pursuing careers in STEM by helping them overcome their financial hurdles.

Any Hispanic, first-generation high school, undergraduate, or graduate student who is pursuing STEM may apply for this scholarship, but applicants who are Michigan residents are preferred.

To apply, tell us what motivated you to attend college as a first-generation student and why you’re pursuing a STEM field.

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Passion
