College enrollment for minority students has risen markedly over the last two decades. Despite campuses’ expanding diversity, BIPOC students continue to be underrepresented in science and engineering degree fields. The HM Family aims to change this by providing a financial brace that may help turn current post-secondary achievement gaps into future gains.
This scholarship seeks to support ambitious BIPOC students who are exploring educational and professional STEM opportunities.
Any high school senior or undergraduate BIPOC student who lives in New York and is interested in studying or working in STEM may apply for this scholarship.

The winner will be publicly announced on May 25, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
