PepsiCo Foundation Uplift Scholarship Program
The Uplift Scholarship Program: An HCC-PepsiCo Foundation Partnership
The Uplift Scholarship program is a partnership between Houston Community College and The PepsiCo Foundation to tackle education inequalities facing the Black and Hispanic populations.
Under the Uplift Scholarship initiative, a group of academic and technical training courses are offered to provide quality education and workforce pathways for Black and Hispanic students in the attainment of an academic degree or technical certificate toward an industry-recognized credential.
The scholarship program offers a broad range of training and services to help students complete their education and obtain jobs with livable and sustainable wages in high-growth, high-demand fields.
Scholarships will be awarded to qualifying students to offset tuition and other associated costs.
