¡So Good Pupusas! (SGP) is a student-led for-profit organization that is committed to raising awareness about the Latino culture, its food, and its people.  SGP also works towards closing the educational achievement gap by providing mentorship and guidance to help Latino students prepare for, enroll to, and successfully complete college.  Each year, they award scholarships to two high school seniors who will graduate in the spring semester and plan to enroll in a 2-year or 4-year college institution in the fall.  The recipients of the scholarship will receive $1,000 per year for 2 or 4 years (contingent upon meeting yearly selection criteria).  In addition, SGP scholars will receive mentorship throughout their years in college.

Here are the eligibility requirements:

  • Applicant must currently be a graduating senior
  • Applicant must be a resident of the state of North Carolina
    • Applicant must currently reside in either Wake, Durham, or Orange County
  • Applicant must have at least one acceptance to a 2-year or 4-year college institution and plan to attend in the fall
