Vagas With Degrees scholarship foundation

Her Vaga Bound Roots was created to support and empower BIPOC women by increasing college access and retention. The Vagas With Degrees Scholarship Foundation was created to alleviate financial burdens for the Vagas in pursuit of their dreams. Our hope is that this scholarship will also further promote the advancement of BIPOC women in academia. 



 The Vagas With Degrees Scholarship Foundation is thrilled to announce we will be awarding our very first scholarship this summer! 


We will be awarding $500 scholarships to two fierce Vagas to use towards the Fall 2020 academic year. 

Application is now OPEN.  Apply today!

Interested in how you can help us award more scholarships in the future? 

Financial challenges are a common barrier for students pursuing higher education, especially those from low income households or marginalized backgrounds. One of our goals is to uplift women navigating college by providing them with a scholarship. By awarding women with a Vagas with Degrees Scholarship, we would be one step closer to changing the narrative for women of color in higher education.


Your generosity will allow us to continue our work of building a community of educated and professional women of color. Please consider supporting the Vagas With Degrees Scholarship Foundation with a donation of $10, $25, $100 or whatever you can afford today. Every contribution will go directly towards impacting the future of a VAGA fulfilling her dreams and achieving academic success.
