Creating equality and proper representation in all areas of the workforce requires supporting first-generation and BIPOC students in their pursuit of education.

For underserved students, getting an education can open unlimited doors to the future, which can make a permanent difference in their lives and the lives of their families. Accessing these opportunities can be difficult, as many BIPOC and first-generation students have limited financial resources and mentors. 

This scholarship aims to support first-generation BIPOC students so they can access higher education and pave the path to their futures.

Any BIPOC, first-generation undergraduate student in California may apply for this scholarship opportunity.

To apply, tell us what inspired you to pursue higher education and how your background has impacted your goals.
