Scholarship Description:
Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. (“Lambda Pi Chi”) was established on April 16, 1988 at Cornell University as the first U.S. Latina-focused sorority founded at an Ivy-league institution.  Lambda Pi Chi works to empower women by providing a supportive network dedicated to their personal and professional advancement.  Their members promote public service and cultural awareness with an emphasis on the Latino/a experience, and are committed to personal, professional, and academic achievement.  To that end, Lambda Pi Chi has established an annual College Book Scholarship for high school seniors who are highly motivated, and committed to community service and academic excellence. The College Book Scholarship is part of Lambda Pi Chi’s Proyecto H.A.C.E.R. (Hermanas Advancing Career and Educational Resources) and will be open to female high school seniors attending high schools in the host city of Lambda Pi Chi’s Annual National Convention.

Lambda Pi Chi will select two high school students who will receive a one-time award of $500 for first place or $250 for second place to assist them in covering the costs of textbooks and/or school supplies for the first year of college.  Lambda Pi Chi’s Scholarship Committee will consider academic achievement, leadership potential, and community involvement during the selection process.

2013 Bill Gates Scholars Program Giving Away 1,000 Scholarships to Minority Students 


Every year, the Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program selects 1,000 talented minority students to receive a good-through-graduation scholarship to use at any college or university of their choice. The program provides scholars with personal and professional development through our leadership programs along with academic support throughout their college career.Administered by the United Negro College Fund, the program was initially funded by a $1 billion grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Since 1999, it has funded the education of more than 16,000 students, awarding them more than $614 million dollars to pay for tuition, fees, books and housing.

The program aims to reduce financial barriers for African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American and Hispanic American students with high academic and leadership promise who have significant financial need; increase the representation of these target groups in the disciplines of computer science, education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health and the sciences, where these groups are severely underrepresented; develop a diversified cadre of future leaders for America by facilitating successful completion of bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees; and provide seamless support from undergraduate through doctoral programs, for students selected as Gates Millennium Scholars entering target disciplines.

The deadline for submission is January 16, 2013.
