The First in Business Foundation was created to empower the next generation of Business leaders.This scholarship was created to provide financial support to first-generation college students interested in pursuing fulfilling Business careers in fields such as accounting, consulting, marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, etc. Earning a Business degree rewards students with flexible, transferrable and in-demand skills that can be applied across a vast variety of industries. In addition, Business degrees are often in high demand and can maximize hiring and earning potential. For first-generation college students, a business degree can provide a high return on investment on the cost of their education. 

It can be difficult for first-generation college students to visualize themselves in professional careers as they often have a limited exposure to the corporate world or may not have role models in those fields. Despite these limitations, students will bring their own set of diverse perspectives, experiences, and skills to make a positive contribution to the corporate world and society.

BIPOC high school students who will be first generation college students are eligible to apply if they have been involved in extracurricular activities and are planning to major in a business-related field. Preference will be given to students in California.

To apply, write about why you are interested in pursuing a career in business, why you believe in the importance of giving back to your community, and share what success means to you.
