Who Can Apply:
- Pregnant and/or teen parents face many challenges, but they come out stronger on the other side of those battles.
- Many times, pregnant and/or teen parents are nervous and unsure of what their futures will look like. However, they work hard to be good parents and often put the needs of their children above their own. A child doesn’t have to be the end of a parent’s hopes and dreams, but rather the push to fulfill them. Through the challenges of raising a child while also earning an education, pregnant and/or teen parents demonstrate incredible perseverance.
- Pursuing higher education is a goal that many pregnant and/or teen parents may feel isn’t feasible–especially when they do not have a strong supportive community. The La Matriz Sagrada Scholarship seeks to empower pregnant and/or teen parents, in turn creating a support network to help them fulfill their dreams.
- BIPOC high school seniors, trade school students, community college students and undergraduates are eligible to apply if they are pregnant and/or teen parents or children of teen parents.
Submission: To apply, write about yourself and what you envision for your future. Share how earning higher education can help turn this dream into a reality.
