Highly engaged high school students ready to expand their knowledge are excellent candidates for a wide variety of national scholarships for their higher education pursual, whether they are a minority in college or looking to attend a trade school. Some educational institutions may have separate major scholarships or a fellowships office that can advise students and organize the process.

Financial aid can help make higher education opportunities possible for many of our minority students and students of color to pursue. Some students can and do receive financial aid from the government. Unfortunately, government aid is often not enough for many students. Listed tuition rates cannot be taken as face-value for the total cost of education, which can increase incrementally year over year as one advances in their academic career. For further funding, scholarships are an excellent option.
