In 1976, college campuses looked a lot different than they do today. Over 80% of the students attending college were Caucasian, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Now, however, the NCES reports that minorities comprise over 33% of the number of students enrolled in college—that’s more than double the amount that were attending 30 years ago.
This percentage continues to rise every single year, and that is in large part due to the fact that minority scholarships are making it easier for minority students to attend college. In fact, millions of dollars in scholarship money work each year to encourage minorities to achieve their academic and career pursuits. As a result, the Fastweb database contains plenty of scholarship opportunities for minority students.
With the help of minority scholarships, you can achieve success in the classroom as well as in the working world, encouraging other minority students to dream big and work hard toward their goals. Below is a sampling of the minority scholarships that exist in our database—filling out a profile may match you to minority scholarships at your school of choice.
On Fastweb, we’ve organized tons of scholarship opportunities into categories, such as ethnicity, race and even gender-specific opportunities as well.
