Women of color face a unique set of obstacles in life due to facing both gender-based and race-based discrimination.
As a result, women of color are underrepresented in many fields, especially when it comes to leadership positions. For example, only 2% of governors and 10% of mayors in the one hundred largest US cities are women of color.
This scholarship aims to aid women of color who struggle financially so they can have an opportunity to pursue higher education.
Any female, BIPOC undergraduate student who has leadership experience, as well as non-profit or volunteering experience, may apply for this scholarship.
