#Build4Barceló and help students graduate.

BarceloCollageSince 2011, the Women’s Center has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships through the Dr. Nancy “Rusty” Barceló Scholarship, which assists women-identified students with financial need in completing their education at the University of Minnesota, with a special focus on women of color, new immigrants, and first-generation college students.

However, our current funds cannot match the needs reflected in the applications we are receiving for the 2015-2016 academic year. We need your support to make these scholarships a reality. Already, student leaders with Delta Phi Omega, Sigma Psi Zeta, and Multicultural Greek Council helped us raise $300 in just one afternoon for the Barceló. Can you help keep up this fantastic momentum? Join us and #Build4Barceló between now and June 30 to help support women students and leaders in the coming year!

To hear more about the power of scholarship from a few Barceló Scholarship Alumnae, check out these blog posts from Samantha, Jennifer, Tawana, and Sousada!
