Cyrilla Olapeju Sanni never had the opportunity to go to college but lived an industrious and productive life. 

Immigrants and the children of immigrants often face significant challenges, such as high cost of tuition, language barriers, lack of mentors, and difficulty accessing education.

This scholarship seeks to support African students who are struggling financially so they can fund their education and achieve all of their dreams.  

Any low-income African student with a 3.0 GPA or higher who migrated from Africa to the United States or is the child of a parent who migrated from Africa to the US may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about the biggest challenge your family has faced when moving to the United States and how that challenge has impacted you.
