In 2013, Black Skeptics Los Angeles (BSLA), a 501c3 organization, spearheaded its First in the Family Humanist Scholarship initiative, which provides resources to undocumented, foster care, homeless and LGBTQ youth who will be the first in their families to go to college. Responding directly to the school-to-prison pipeline crisis in communities of color, BSLA is the first atheist organization to specifically address college pipelining for youth of color with an explicitly anti-racist multicultural emphasis.
There are two different types of awards:
1) Four $1000 scholarships will be awarded to LAUSD graduating seniors who will be the first in their immediate families to go to college.
2) Four $2500 scholarships will be awarded to students of color (African American, Latino(a), Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American) who identify as agnostic, atheist, humanist, and/or secular.
