Dolores Huerta Scholarship for Social Justice Community Engagement
The Transform Dolores Huerta Scholarship specifically will provide financial assistance to undergraduate students who are participating in community-engaged, social justice work via an internship or a project of their own design. These funds will support undergraduate students majoring in one of Transform’s programs—students who might not be able to pursue their internship/project without this crucial financial support. The scholarship will aid the selected students to serve and gain valuable experience in the community.
Students will be selected on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to community engagement, service, and social justice and on the project/ internship’s potential impact on the student’s learning and professional development.
Students must have a Transform faculty mentor for the project. Students who are pursuing a minor or certificate, but not majoring in Transform will be considered.
Priority will be given to students who are not receiving any other funding for their project/internship, but all applications will be considered.
