Diversity Scholarships
Check with any University to see if they offer Diversity Scholarships.
A good amount of Universities offer diversity scholarships anywhere from $500-2,000 a term. Being diverse means showing a great deal of variety. In today's society, it's easy to become accustom to surroundings and blend in with the crowd, simply because it's easier. If you have it in you, we highly recommend you take advantage of your diversity and let others know what you're capable of. For questions, come to the Counseling Office.
