Coming up with the funds necessary to pursue a college degree can be difficult or even impossible for many students.

Learners from families with limited means often receive little parental support when it comes time to pay for college, which is often the case for first-generation learners or students with immigrant parents. Creating more equitable access to educational and professional opportunities requires providing financial aid so that financial circumstances don’t hold students back from their dreams.

This scholarship seeks to support students who are mostly self-funding their education so they have the assistance they need to succeed.

Any high school senior who is an underrepresented minority with financial need may apply for this scholarship if they will be a first-generation college student and/or they have at least one immigrant parent.

To apply, write a short essay telling us about your background, what motivates you to pursue your education, and what you hope to do with your education.
