these comments make me laugh because they come from ignorance. Its expected for Caucasians to go to college and have easier access to money they are the majority of the population here in America. Caucasians are privileged in America. The minorities in America do not get the same resources or abilities that Caucasians do. That is why there are scholarships like this. So please don't complain about being white in this white America. Thank you.

And if they made a scholarship for Caucasians only it would be hateful and racist, but its ok if they do it for every other race.

This scholarship discriminates against caucasian individuals.
