Despite the great strides made by minority students in higher education, BIPOC students face significant obstacles that reduce their degree attainment rates.
Financial resources are often a critical factor in one’s pursuit of higher education. For example, while 71% of Black students take out federal student loans, just 56% of white students do the same. High amounts of debt can cause BIPOC students to drop out, turn away from graduate degrees, or even avoid college altogether.
This scholarship seeks to support students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities so they can afford to complete their degrees.
Any BIPOC high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is or will be attending an HBCU to study communications may apply for this scholarship.
