Who Can Apply:
- Minority students are often placed at a disadvantage when it comes to pursuing higher education.
- The wealth gap often means that minority students do not have the financial resources necessary to finance their college education, forcing many to turn to student loans in order to pursue their educational goals. These loans and their high interest rates trap many students in cycles of debt, holding them back from saving for retirement, buying homes, and pursuing advanced degrees.
- This scholarship aims to support students who have had to overcome obstacles to pursue higher education.
- Any disadvantaged, underrepresented minority undergraduate or graduate student in Arizona who has at least a 3.5 GPA and community service experience may apply for this scholarship.
