Increasing Access to Bike & Build

The Bike & Build Scholarship award engages individuals from low-income and historically marginalized communities to participate in a team-based, service-oriented opportunity centered around affordable housing. This experience will further empower scholarship recipients to serve others for many years beyond their participation in Bike & Build.

People of color, immigrant, trans and genderqueer applicants are encouraged to apply.
