Kremen Equity Scholars

Kremen Equity Scholars

The Student Equity Scholar Award program is intended to assist four students at the Undergraduate, Credential, Masters, and Doctoral levels, by allowing them to integrate issues of equity and social justice within their studies during the 2022-23 academic year. Each of the four selected Equity Scholars will be provided with tuition support (up to $7,000) for one academic year. In return, students are expected to engage in community service or partnership outreach. They may also participate in research connected with their studies to address a specific issue of inequity or social justice in the local community.
