Breakthrough strongly encourages applications from community college students, undocumented students, LGBTQ+ students, men, students of color, and students of all gender identities. Students with an understanding of intersectionality are also encouraged to apply.
*Breakthrough’s Action Lab is free of charge to all participants, with support from the Oak Foundation. While travel expenses are not covered for all, limited scholarship funds will be available.
