Every student deserves the chance to attain their educational goals.

Unfortunately, many students don’t get the opportunity to do so due to their economic position. First-generation, BIPOC students often have limited financial resources compared to continuing-generation students, with first-generation college freshmen having a median family income of $37,565 compared to a continuing-generation median of $99,635.

This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Joe Cruz Jr. by supporting first-generation students as they pursue higher education. 

Any first-generation, BIPOC high school senior in Texas may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how you plan to use your education to make a difference in the world.
