This makes me furious. Those scholarships are super hard to get. In the seven years I worked for a higher education program for low income and/or first generation college students (majority of the students served were African American), none of our students ever got one. I can’t tell you how many times I had seniors who couldn’t graduate because they ran out of student aid and there were almost no scholarships that fit them. I guess like you said, a lot of it is in people’s heads.
