First-generation, low-income, and Latin American

First-generation, low-income (FGLI) students face a unique set of struggles when pursuing higher education.

The lack of college cultural capital, the lack of educational resources, and overall struggle are not easy obstacles to overcome. These issues are especially heightened when a student identifies as BIPOC as well. Higher education often seems out of reach for many individuals in the Latin American community. 

This scholarship aims to support underprivileged Latin American students who are dedicated to pursuing higher education.

Any first-generation, low-income Latin American high school senior who is planning to attend a four-year university may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about yourself, your passions, how you plan to make a difference through your career, and how being a first-generation Latin-American student has impacted your goals.
