A college education can open up innumerable doors and opportunities that can help students create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

While college isn’t the only path that a student can take, pursuing higher education can lead to personal fulfillment, a new sense of community, and increased job options. With the high costs of tuition, many students are forced to turn away from college or take on significant debt early on in life, which can deter borrowers from starting businesses, attending graduate school, or pursuing other endeavors.

This scholarship aims to honor the West family legacy by helping underserved students access higher education.

Any BIPOC high school senior or undergraduate student who has at least a 3.0 GPA and is involved in athletics, community activities, drama, band, etc., may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how you’re working to address a social issue.
