A Scholarship for Poor White Men

Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos has started a scholarship for white men:

In a move certain to infuriate the left, Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos has created the Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant, “a scholarship exclusively available to white men who wish to pursue their post-secondary education on equal footing with their female, queer and ethnic minority classmates.”

The grant plans to disburse 50 grants of $2,500 to poor, young white men who need that last push to get them to college and who can’t make up the shortfall with loans or other sources of income. The grant does not entail an enormous cash gift, but rather prefers to be seen as a stepping stone, as frequently the opportunity for a student to attend college is based on amassing just a few thousand dollars.

Applications will open later in 2016; they will be comprised of video essays, written essays, and financial assessment, thus ensuring that the grants are means and ability tested. The first grants will be issued in time for the start of the 2016-17 academic year. The grant’s website is intended to “remain the most up to date source of news and updates as we make more decisions and develop criteria.”

I like the idea that it is for poor white men as they are the ones who often are over-looked and flounder when it comes to college.

Would you apply for such a scholarship if you needed it for school?
