Who Can Apply:
- Every student has a slightly different educational journey, with experiences that are uniquely personal to their situation.
- Because of this, many students don’t take what is considered to be a traditional educational route. Not everyone is accepted to the schools they wish to attend. Not everyone knows what their future is going to look like. The STAR Scholarship – Students Taking Alternative Routes seeks to help students who face the overwhelming challenge of taking non-traditional paths to earning their education. It is important to give these students the support and resources they need in order for them to be successful.
- BIPOC high school seniors, undergraduate, trade school, or graduate students are eligible to apply if they are taking a less traditional educational route or come from disadvantaged inner city areas.
