Undergraduate Scholarship Platform for Latino Youth Launched – NBC Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – A new platform called IOScholarships provides free access to scholarships and financial education so that high school students, graduate students, and graduate students can find student scholarships.

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, collectively known as STEM, are the fastest-growing and highest-paying fields in the United States, with diverse employment opportunities in jobs ranging from aerospace engineers and programmers to operations managers, however, only Latinos make up 7% of the industry.

Recognizing the length and complexity of the scholarship search process for students of various STEM disciplines, María Fernanda Trochimezuk has created IOS Scholarships to facilitate access to scholarships for students. She learned firsthand how to find, apply for and win scholarships and became an advocate for scholarship promotion across the country.

“I have been inspired by the IOS Scholarships from my own experience because I was very fortunate to have access to scholarships to attend prestigious universities and realized that more could be done to support minority students, especially now that STEM education is more important to job opportunities,” Maria Fernanda Trochemizuk, IO Scholarships. “IOS Scholarships will not only help Hispanic students find scholarships, but will contribute to equal opportunity so that all minority students have the opportunity to achieve their educational goals.”

Most of the scholarships listed on the IOScholarships website come directly from organizations, rather than just universities, increasing the number of opportunities for students to earn funding for their education.

Every month, IOScholarships adds hundreds of new curated scholarships to its database and also publishes “Scholarship of the Week” to Instagram accounts (IOScholarships), making it easier for students to find new scholarship opportunities.

In addition to offering scholarships, the scholarship access platform for IOScholarships features a free scholarship organizer, news articles designed to provide guidance on applying for scholarships, and money-saving tips.

The platform also offers a career abilities survey designed to help students identify jobs that best match their skills.
