Students must demonstrate a commitment to social justice and to raising awareness of the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, class and nationality, among others, in an essay of approximately 500 words. Scholarship awards are based on academic merit, financial need, and a demonstrated commitment to social justice.
