WHY?

EN MI BARRIO

At En Mi Barrio we’re raising funds to begin this initiative to support underrepresented students toward a post-secondary education. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of these students.

Objective 

En Mi Barrio wants Latinx scholars from underrepresented communities to reach their full potential through post-secondary education.

The Problem/Opportunity 

Over the years there has been an increase in enrollment of Latinx students in colleges, but although the increase only half of them graduate with a bachelor’s degree. This happens mostly to students from underrepresented communities. Although, scholarships is just one form that can assist these students to stay and graduate college we want to make their transition to college smoother.

Initial Donation 

Our initial donation will help us start the process to execute our first scholarship awards. The funding will allow us to find out first cohort of scholarship recipients.
