Good question. For the purposes of
the StraightForward Media Minority Scholarship, minority is defined as having
membership in a racial or ethnic minority group historically disadvantaged within
the context of the United States. The most common members of these groups are
Black/African American students, Hispanic/Latino/Chicano students, Asian students
and Native American/American Indian/Eskimo students.
Exceptions? We anticipate
two frequent questions: 1) I am male, and men are a gender minority in the U.S.
May I apply?; and 2) I am a Caucasian female. Am I considered a minority, and
therefore may I apply? The answer to both these questions is no; however, the
good news is, there are plenty
of other scholarhips you're eligible for.
