Balancing the scale of opportunity by making higher education accessible for all can be a key part of lifting people out of poverty. 

First-generation low-income students (FGLI) are often discouraged from continuing their education due to the many barriers they have to overcome to access college. Too often inadequate financial resources, limited family support, and underfunded schools leave FGLI students behind. 

This scholarship seeks to support low-income students who need financial assistance in order to fund their college education.

Any BIPOC, first-generation, and low-income high school senior or undergraduate student may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how life has prepared you for success, how you define success, and where you see yourself in twenty years.
