Multicultural, Interracial, Multi-ethnic, and Minority Scholarships

According to College "Multicultural scholarships are slowly finding larger audiences. While eligibility for each award hinges on specific requirements, multicultural scholarship programs share the common goal of promoting higher education among ethnic student populations.

Scholarships that serve diverse student populations are alternately called multicultural, multiracial, interracial, and multi-ethnic.  Don’t get caught up in the language, each of these student aid initiatives is designed to lift multicultural citizens into the ranks of higher education.

There is no scientific definition of what constitutes a ‘minority’ student, especially in society’s evolving cultural melting-pot that continues to churn out eager college students of all creeds and colors. Use your own diverse make-up to uncover financial aid for college – including your ancestry and cultural identity.  Tap general aid and minority scholarships, but also embrace your multi-cultural heritage to land scholarship dollars for college."
