{m}aganda Magazine would like to announce that our AB 540 scholarship application is now released!

If you intend to apply, you can access the application is here. We encourage all students who identify as AB 540 to apply. It is with much gratitude to our community, friends, and supporters this year that enabled us to make this scholarship possible. 

Deadline to apply is Thursday, May 8.

This scholarship is a response to the growing financial need of AB 540 students and the immigrant-related issues in our communities. With this, we hope to not only provide resources and support for AB 540 students, but to encourage them to continue persevering and inspiring others with their strength, tenacity, and courage.

{m} will always extend its hands and voices to any and all who own truths that need to be spoken.
