Many people become discouraged from pursuing their education because of financial hardship. 

Tuition, housing, and other costs add up, resulting in many students having to juggle long hours at work with school and other responsibilities. Even students who work full-time often have to take out student loans in order to cover the rest of their expenses.

This scholarship aims to support underrepresented students who aspire to further their education and build their careers. 

Any student with a 3.0 GPA or higher who is part of an underrepresented group may apply for this scholarship, such as BIPOC students, women, LGBTQ+ students, or those with disabilities. Applicants who have volunteering experience are preferred! 

To apply, tell us how you have overcome adversity and how you hope to help your community in the future.
