Walter Morales Scholarship for Urban Education Improvement

In order to qualify, you must be a current undergraduate student at a university in the United States or High School student that will attend university.

The Walter Morales Scholarship will be awarded to the winner of an essay competition. A single winner will be chosen based on writing a unique essay of less than 1000 words that addresses and answers the following:

“Think about the unique challenges that face urban schools. Urban schools are marked by higher concentrations of poverty, greater racial and ethnic diversity, larger concentrations of immigrant populations, language diversity, and more frequent rates of student mobility.

Discuss these and/or other factors that are challenges for urban schools and how you would improve the urban education system.“
