Everyone should have access to a quality education so they can pursue any field or career.
Unfortunately, many students, particularly female students of color, face barriers in pursuing higher education, leading to underrepresentation in fields such as STEM. Latinas, especially those who are first-generation college students, need to have the necessary mentors and resources to break into the STEM field and bring diversity to the workforce.
This scholarship aims to support first-generation Latinas who are interested in pursuing STEM careers so that they can reach all of their dreams and boost the representation of women of color.
Any first-generation Latina student who is a high school senior or undergraduate and interested in pursuing STEM may apply for this scholarship opportunity.
