Social Justice

Miguel was a first generation college graduate, born and raised in Colorado. 

He was always seeking ways to reshape our world to be more equitable and accessible for all. He believed he was privileged to have such support systems that helped him achieve his goals. It was his life’s duty to ensure that the next generation has the necessary tools to achieve their goals too. Miguel passed away in an accident last July. To honor his memory, the Miguel Mendez Social Justice Scholarship will support undergraduate students pursuing a career in social justice.

Undergraduate, first-generation college students from low-income backgrounds are eligible to apply if they have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and are pursuing a career in social justice. To apply, explain in either a video or essay application how you are working to address an important issue.
