Scholarships and Financial Aid for Minorities in USA

According to research, the average cost of tuition for an in-state student at a public university in the United States has increased by 296% over the past 20 years. At the same time, wages in the U.S. have barely grown in that same time. College students are graduating with more debt than ever.

Statistics indicate that minority students often graduate with more debt than their peers.

Fortunately, federal grants and scholarships for minorities can significantly lighten the financial load for these students.

The U.S. Department of Education recently invested $96 million in grants to provide additional financial aid specifically for minority students. This grant funding will go directly to colleges and universities to help them provide better financial support to their minority populations.

Minority students who receive federal grants and loans to help finance their college educations often could use some additional funding to help them bridge financial gaps. Scholarships for minorities are of tremendous help to these students, but finding the right scholarships to apply to is not always an easy task. To help you in your search for additional funding, we have compiled a list of some of the top minority scholarships. Check on the link to find a detailed list of these scholarships, including eligibility requirements, deadlines, and information on how to apply.

Any high school senior from the state of Minnesota who plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities is eligible to apply for the Puckett Scholars Program.

Nisei Student Relocation Commemorative Fund 2017: Rhode Island/Eastern MA

The scholarship deadline is next Wednesday, February 1st for Southeast Asian American students in Rhode Island and Eastern MA who plan to attend college in the Fall. Only a limited number of scholarships are available, and they can make a big difference for the right student.

The funds were made possible by the families of those who’d been unjustly placed in the Japanese internment camps during World War II.
It’s only available in one state at a time, and this year it’s being made available to students in Rhode Island and Eastern MA. In Rhode Island, there were an estimated 11,971 Southeast Asians living thiere including 5,961 Cambodians, 1,015 Hmong, 3,380 Laotians, and 1,615 Vietnamese back in 2010.

For many of the states where Lao, Khmer and Hmong resettled, fewer than 2 in 10 successfully complete college, and scholarships can play a key role in preventing financial distress from being a reason for students dropping out.

Historically, it’s also been very important for us to actively help get the word out to these families because many the scholarship wants to serve most don’t have a frame of reference for what and when to apply.

The deadline is February 1st but it can make a real difference in students lives, especially for those who are among the first in their family to attend college.

I strongly encourage you to please help spread the word and assist students in applying if you have relatives or friends in Rhode Island or Eastern Massachusetts.

Students will need to write a Personal Statement of 500 words or less (2 pages and typed) that will help the local committee understand why the student wants to continue their education or career training after high school. they are asked to select from one of the following topics as part of their essay:

– Are there any outstanding circumstances that may help the committee better understand you/your life and goals?

– What obstacles or challenges have you faced in getting an education?


– What are your personal and career goals?


– What contributions do you see yourself making to your ethnic community in the future?


– Describe how you have demonstrated leadership in or out of school.
