Even as college becomes a more common choice for students from all backgrounds, first-generation students are placed at a disadvantage.
Due to the more limited career opportunities that adults without college degrees have, many first-generation students come from low-income or middle-class families that don’t have the resources necessary to pay for their college expenses. Additionally, first-generation students are forced to be more independent due to the limited guidance and mentorship they have.
This scholarship aims to support minority students who are interested in breaking generational barriers by being the first in their families to attend college.
Any first-generation, BIPOC undergraduate student pursuing a two or four-year degree may apply for this scholarship if they have non-profit or volunteering experience.
To apply, tell us how you’re working to address an important societal issue, who you are as a person, and how you plan to help the world through your career.
