Scholarships are offered by organizations created to boost equality for those who haven’t had it in the past. The term minority can refer to a number of characteristics including ethnicity, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or disability. (We cover scholarships for students with disabilities and women on other pages.) Whether offered by an association that protects the interests of African Americans or new immigrants, these scholarships were created to allow those who might otherwise be faced with overwhelming challenges, the opportunity to gain an education.
