FGLI (first-generation, low-income) students are often underprivileged and underrepresented in the world of higher education. 

Many FGLI students come from families living paycheck to paycheck, meaning that they don’t have family resources to pay for college. Additionally, due to their parents not having degrees, it can be overwhelming to navigate college applications, the FAFSA, and other processes.  

This scholarship aims to support underprivileged students who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM.  

Any BIPOC and/or female high school senior or undergraduate who is a first-generation, low-income student interested in STEM may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about some challenges you’ve overcome while pursuing your education and how you hope to benefit the world through your STEM education.
