The life of an immigrant is difficult in different ways for everyone who travels that path.

Immigrant students face additional obstacles such as language barriers, paperwork responsibilities, lack of contacts, and more in addition to the struggles faced by their natural-born peers. While citizens also face the high cost of tuition, the challenges faced by immigrants, especially those who do not have any help subsidizing their education and living conditions in the US are very high. 

This scholarship aims to support female immigrants so they can overcome the obstacles they face and complete their college degrees.

Any female high school senior or two or four-year undergraduate who is an immigrant or foreign student may apply for this scholarship, but women of Nigerian or African descent are preferred.

To apply, tell us about yourself, your story, what life has been like as an immigrant or foreign student, what you’ve learned since making the journey, and how immigrating has impacted your life and career choices.
