While often viewed as separate, the arts and sciences are naturally intertwined and evident in the world around us.
In today’s society, students are pressured to pursue one distinct path throughout their education and career, often forcing them to make a choice between areas of interest. Encouraging students to creatively bridge the gap between art and science in practical and sustainable ways that serve our communities is crucial in fostering innovation and progress.
This scholarship seeks to support underrepresented students who are interested in the arts and sciences so they can achieve their dreams of higher education.
Any BIPOC high school senior or undergraduate student in the state of Texas, with financial need and volunteering experience who is interested in the arts and/or sciences may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us what you’re planning to study and how you imagine you’ll use your education to help your community.
