There are certain challenges that come with being a first generation college student.

Helping these students financially creates a fair society that allows people of all backgrounds to be successful. The creator of the scholarship, who was also a first generation college student, wishes to see other first generation students aim for a college education. Limiting the cost barrier helps with this goal. The Velez NJ Scholarship will support a BIPOC student in New Jersey who is a first generation college student.

BIPOC high school seniors and undergraduate students are eligible to apply if they are first generation college students from New Jersey.

To apply, write about yourself and how this scholarship will help you achieve your educational goals.
