Synopsis : These scholarships can be used as a supplement to financial aid, or to assist students currently not eligible for U.S. federal or state financial aid or grants.
To help promote diversity on college campuses and make higher education possible to all students, many scholarship providers including companies and individuals are now offering scholarships to assist minority students. These individual scholarship awards range from a few-hundred to several-thousand dollars per year.
The scholarships listed can be used either as a supplement to financial aid, or to assist students who are currently not eligible for federal or state financial aid or grants.
A large percentage of the U.S. college population is comprised of minority students from various backgrounds and races. Minorities can often receive more than just one scholarship, so it pays to investigate the various different organization scholarships currently available both online as well as offline.
What is Meant by "Minority"?
The word UNIVERSITY is written on building.
A minority group refers to a category of people who experience relative disadvantage as compared to members of a dominant social group.
Minority group membership is typically based on differences in observable characteristics or practices, such as: sex, ethnicity, race, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.
Minority students - those who do not belong to a region's or nation's majority racial or ethnic group - may be subject to discrimination, whether sanctioned or passive, that can affect their educational achievement.
Some of the scholarships for minority groups we list below include:
