College tuition costs have risen steadily across the country over the last few decades, presenting greater challenges for many students. For many students of color, these costs may be exacerbated by above-average poverty rates, which lead to lower enrollment and educational attainment numbers. While financial support programs can help, these students also experience above-average gaps between financial need and aid received.
In an attempt to reverse these trends, schools, government agencies, and other organizations have developed an increasing number of scholarship programs aimed at helping these underserved learners of color. These programs attempt to improve diversity in schools and workplaces by providing funding opportunities for promising students.
