PepsiCo Foundation Uplift Scholarship
PepsiCo Foundation and WCC Partnership:
Education Is What I Like
These scholarships support Black and Hispanic students pursuing a degree or short-term workforce training in IT fields. PepsiCo Foundation has selected Westchester Community College as only one of three community colleges in the U.S. to offer an exciting scholarship opportunity for WCC students of color.
- Black and Hispanic students are 50% less likely to earn a bachelors degree in a STEM field than are White students.
- Black and Hispanic representation in STEM fields is 50% lower than the overall rates of US working professionals.
PepsiCo Foundation is supporting two scholarship programs to address minority underrepresentation in high-demand fields. The Uplift Scholarship targets students of color pursuing IT career track training.
