Everyone should have access to a quality education so they can pursue any field or career.
Unfortunately, many students, particularly female students of color, face barriers in pursuing higher education, leading to underrepresentation in fields such as STEM. Latinas, especially those who are first-generation college students, need to have the necessary mentors and resources to break into the STEM field and bring diversity to the workforce.
This scholarship aims to support first-generation Latinas who are interested in pursuing STEM careers so that they can reach all of their dreams and boost the representation of women of color.
Any first-generation Latina student who is a high school senior or undergraduate and interested in pursuing STEM may apply for this scholarship opportunity.
To apply, tell us about yourself and how you hope to make the world a better place through your work in STEM.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and how you plan to make a positive impact on the world through a career in STEM.

The winner will be publicly announced on May 1, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
