Colby Bohannan said that when he first applied to college, his family didn't have a huge stockpile of money set aside to pay for school. He found many scholarships for women and minorities, but none aimed at people like him: white men.
"I felt excluded," said Bohannan, a Texas State University student. "If everyone else can find scholarships, why are we left out?"
So Bohannan, a mass communication major and Iraq war veteran, and others formed the Former Majority Association for Equality — a San Marcos-based nonprofit group that is offering five $500 scholarships exclusively to white male students.
Bohannan, the group's president, said the name comes from the idea that "if you're not a male, and if you're not white, you're called a minority." However, he said, "I'm not sure white males are the majority anymore"...
Applicants need to be at least 25 percent Caucasian, have a GPA exceeding 3.0 and demonstrate financial need.
