Each year the Chicana Latina Foundation awards merit-based scholarships to Latina college students, valued at $1,500 each. Eligible applicants are Chicana/Latina undergraduate or graduate students who have resided for at least two years in one of several Northern California counties, and are likewise either accepted to or completing their thesis, dissertation, or coursework in a graduate institution in one of these counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, or Yolo. Must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and be enrolled or planning to enroll full-time in a graduate or professional school. Recipients commit to attending the CLF Leadership Institute weekend, and to volunteering 10 hours with the Institute. Awardees may not reapply until four years after receiving a CLF Scholarship. AB/540 students are eligible to apply.
