The Former Majority Association for Equality (FMAFE), founded by a group of students at Texas State University in San Marcos, will provide the scholarships. The scholarships were founded to contrast the scholarship programs for minorities and women.

FMAFE will provide up to five $500 scholarships to white men who have at least a 3.0 grade point average beginning this summer. Despite all the controversy that the scholarship is bound to receive, though, applicants are only required to be 25% Caucasian. (via Reuters)
