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. 

To apply, tell us about yourself and how you hope to benefit the world through the completion of your college degree.
