The Sallie Mae Fund, the charitable arm of Sallie Mae®, in partnership with Thurgood Marshall College Fund, has launched The Bridging the Dream Scholarship Program for Graduate Students.
Ten scholarships, totaling up to $100,000, are available for current graduate students from underserved or marginalized communities, including minority, low-income, and first-generation college students. The application window is open now through Oct. 25.
To be eligible, students must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident currently enrolled at least half-time at an accredited graduate level program. Interested applicants will be required to upload a short video about their passion for advancing social justice.
The Bridging the Dream for Graduate Students Scholarship is part of a $3 million commitment made by The Sallie Mae Fund to open doors for students from all backgrounds pursuing higher education.
