Education Level:
Bachelor's or master's degree
Field of Study:
First or second-generation immigrant or other underrepresented minority

Access to higher education often serves as a barrier to success in the United States, with students underrepresented in academia struggling to catch up. 

Having just one person pursue higher education can serve to elevate an entire family, but that possibility is being put further and further out of reach financially as college costs soar. Families that are new to America and those that have otherwise been generationally denied higher education face particular struggles when attempting to enter the collegiate space, furthering cycles of poverty and strife.

This scholarship aims to make college more accessible to students with no family background in higher education so they can have the same opportunities as their peers.

Any student pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a STEAM field may apply for this scholarship if they’re a first or second-generation immigrant or an otherwise underrepresented minority in higher education whose parents and grandparents haven’t attained the level of education being pursued.

To apply, tell us about your hopes and fears about pursuing college and how your background has affected your education and your goals.

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Passion
