Founding Mother Scholarship
This scholarship is
awarded in honor of the Chicana/Latina women who founded TRENZA after
recognizing a lack of academic, community, and social support for
Chicana/Latinas on the UC Berkeley campus. This scholarship is designed to reward those who, like TRENZA’s founding
mothers, encountered a difficult challenge but continued to succeed in their
personal and academic endeavors.
Personal Statement Question:
Describe any difficult or special circumstances you faced as you were growing up and/or describe any specific family responsibilities that you have had. How did this experience affect your academic and personal development? How did this experience give you a unique background or perspective?
*The personal statement should be no more than 3 pages in length using 12-point font and double spaced*
