Maná has announced The Maná Scholarship Program to benefit Latino students who want to achieve their dream of furthering their education.
In partnership with their Selva Negra Foundation and the Univision Foundation, and administered by Scholarship America, the program will assist up to 15 students between the ages of 18 and 35 who identify as Latino and who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
According to the official press statement, “these scholarships are intended to help applicants who have a demonstrated commitment to positive change in their communities; specifically, those who have chosen to help clean up or otherwise improve the environment around them.”
The Maná Scholarship Program is open to high school seniors or graduates and to current college undergraduates who are either U.S. citizens, U.S. legal residents, or undocumented residents of the U.S., including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.
Only the first 1,000 applications submitted will be considered. Deadline to apply is at 3 p.m. CT on October 23.
