In 2021, Guerrera Marketing & PR and Travel With Purpose launched a scholarship fund specifically to assist young Black and Brown women across the U.S. in accomplishing their educational goals. Through the purchase of our merch, fundraising events and/or monetary contributions via our Go Fund Me campaign, you can change the course of the lives of young guerreras of color in our community.
The Guerrera x TWP Scholarship Fund will be an ongoing campaign. Applicants can email us their stories explaining why and what they need financial assistance for and how much they need to accomplish their goal (see details below). Once an applicant is chosen to receive a scholarship, Travel With Purpose [501(c)3] will make a donation directly to the institution, college or university. *No monies will be donated directly to the scholarship recipients in order to ensure the legitimacy of the entries. To apply to the Guerrera x TWP Scholarship Fund please send a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org including the information below.
