First-generation college students, especially those who are Black or Latinx, have to overcome many obstacles to complete a college degree.
When compared to white and Asian students, Black and Latinx students are underrepresented when it comes to obtaining Bachelor’s degrees. Only 21% of Black adults and 16% of Latinx adults hold Bachelor’s degrees, leading to disparities in top fields.
This scholarship aims to help underrepresented first-generation college students pursue their undergraduate or graduate degrees.
Any Latinx or African American first-generation college student who’s working on an undergraduate or graduate degree may apply for this scholarship.
