Scholarship Details

Overview

Caissa is pleased to launch our annual Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship program. This scholarship is meant to help those students in our communities that have demonstrated strong potential for success but may be hindered by factors outside of their control. Inequalities exist in our communities and need to be addressed. We believe one of the most central and impactful ways to address societal disadvantages and inequality is through access to education. Our mission is to help pave the way for minority students of low-income households to be able to pursue higher education and all the opportunities it can bring. Each year, six qualified students will each receive a $5,000 scholarship.
