Many students are in need of funding for higher education, especially those who are first-generation and Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.
There are many BIPOC individuals who have had to fight to use their given names and many have changed their names to accommodate the English language and American norms. In order to preserve individuality and diversity, it’s important that students are encouraged to use their given names rather than change their names to appease others.
This scholarship aims to honor individuality by supporting students from diverse backgrounds on their path to higher education.
Any first-generation BIPOC student may apply for this scholarship opportunity.
To apply, tell us the story of your name, including what it means to you, why it’s important, and the power it holds.
