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 scholarships you’re eligible for.
