Although the official day of celebration is Monday, the Division of Multicultural Affairs at WMU support Dr. Martin Luther King remembrance throughout the year by awarding the Cultural Diversity Scholarship, originally the Martin Luther King Scholarship, to certain students who meet the requirements, according to Sherrie Fuller, an assistant director of multicultural affairs at WMU.What are the requirements for this scholarship?
"The scholarship creates opportunity for students who might not have that same opportunity otherwise," Fuller said.
Although Fuller said the requirements to receive this scholarship are simple, the Division of Multicultural Affairs is no longer allowed to issue the Cultural Diversity Scholarship at this time.
One requirement of students who applied for the scholarship was to identify as Native American, Latino or African AmericanNo whites need apply!
Sadly, this cultural diversity has come to an end thanks to a constitutional amendment (not "a law") called the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative.
Apparently, white people can't have cultural diversity.
Now, no one need apply.
