LULAC Lambda invites current and future college students in the District of Columbia to apply for its 2021 LULAC Lambda Scholarship targeting students from the LGBTQ Latinx community.
In 2021, LULAC Lambda will award more than one $1,000 scholarship to District of Columbia graduating high school seniors and college students obtaining bachelors, masters or doctoral degrees.
“LULAC Lambda is grateful to those who have donated in order to provide us with enough resources to continue our scholarship program for a fourth year,” said Erik Rodriquez, president of LULAC Lambda. “We want thank our members and allies who support our fundraisers and a special thank you to BHT Foundation for their partnership and generous support of our scholarship program. Our community is coming together to help invest in our youth.”
LULAC Lambda is one of 1,000 local councils across the United States affiliated with the League of United Latin American Citizens, the nation’s largest and oldest Latinx civil rights volunteer-based organization. One of the goals of LULAC is to increase access to education, so it encourages local councils like LULAC Lambda to sponsor scholarships.
“The scholarship committee will look at academic performance as well as the student’s work in social justice and community service accomplishments in the Latinx and/or LGBTQ community,” said Bri Perez-Brennan, LULAC Lambda Vice President. “We hope our $1,000 scholarships help District of Columbia students achieve their dream.”
The LULAC Lambda Scholarship application opens on November 1, 2020 and applications are being accepted through January 10, 2021. Applicants must have a 2.5 grade point average or better on a 4.0 scale and be enrolled at a District of Columbia high school, college or university. Finalists will be interviewed in February, and scholarship winners will be notified in early March. Checks will be presented in April.
