A new report shows that white students are more likely to receive college scholarships than students of color.

The report shows that white students receive more than three times as much merit-based grant and private scholarship funding than students of color.

The myth that students of color are taking all the scholarship money is so prevalent that policies like California’s Proposition 209 and Michigan’s Civil Rights Initiative (Proposal 2) include mentions that scholarships and financial aid should be awarded solely on the basis of need and ability, not race.
