College Scholarships Foundation Minority Student Scholarship
We're giving away $500 this year to a minority college student this year.
Minorities are generally at a disadvantage when it comes to gaining access to quality education and jobs.
In these modern times, most college campuses are proportionately reflecting the actual ethnic makeup of the country's population. However, the circumstances before a minority student's college life can make higher education financially challenging.
We provide assistance to help the brightest students with their expenses to ensure a smooth transition into this country's multicultural job force.
Candidates for our minority student scholarship must meet the following criteria
- U.S. citizen;
- 3.0 GPA;
- Currently attending full-time in post-secondary education (undergraduate or graduate); and
For this scholarship, we define 'minority' as someone of one of the following ethnicities:
- Native American
- Pacific Islander

As tuition and college expenses continue to rise, we feel it is in our best interest to help the most deserving students. This brings us many tough decisions in deciding who is the most "deserving".

There is a 300 word limit to our essay questions. Generally though, short and interesting is preferred over verbose. Use any of these questions as the basis for your scholarship essay:
- How has being a minority affected your pre-college education?
- How has being a minority positively affected your character?
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
