Minority students are now an integral part of colleges throughout the U.S.A. These are significant gains made in the past decade. However, the graduation rate for minority students in college is only 50%.
This scholarship will help minority students pay for college tuition. Students who serve at non-profit internships have earned a diploma. We want to enable more minority students to complete their education.
