Earning a college degree is the biggest and longest-harbored dream of many young people, with a college education unlocking a whole new world of career opportunities. 

Enrolling in higher education is an especially important endeavor for students from minority backgrounds, who often face significant barriers when pursuing their dreams.

This scholarship aims to support underrepresented students who are pursuing higher education so they can overcome the obstacles they face and succeed.
