    Scholarships and Education for BIPOC Students

    These highly rated charities make higher education more attainable for BIPOC students.

    BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals face various systemic barriers and inequities that make it harder for them to access and succeed in college. These challenges can be attributed to historical and ongoing racial discrimination, socioeconomic disparities, and limited access to quality education.


    Note: On June 29, 2023, the Supreme Court ruled that Harvard and the University of North Carolina's admissions policy violated the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, now impacting affirmative action at all colleges.


    Our analysts have identified highly rated charities working to make education more attainable for all. Click on the name of each organization to learn more about their mission, programs, and services and consider making a donation via the Giving Basket.
