Paying for higher education is expensive, and not everyone has the resources to afford a college education.
As a result of this, there are students that never pursue their desired career path, choosing instead to find jobs right out of high school, enlist in the military, etc. The Kenyada Me’Chon Thomas Legacy Scholarship seeks to give students of underrepresented minorities the opportunity to earn higher education without a financial burden that would otherwise stop them.
This scholarship is specifically for BIPOC students who are in their senior year of high school. To be considered for this scholarship, you must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher. In your application, write about how you would influence a major social issue if given the chance.
