Systemic racism and discriminatory policies have resulted in BIPOC facing greater obstacles to advancing in the fields of arts, science, technology, and entrepreneurship.
Generator aims to support our BIPOC community by providing scholarships that can meaningfully advance their personal and professional pursuits.
Each year, Generator gives out $10,000 in makerspace access and technical education to our Vermont Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Community through our BIPOC Scholarship program. Scholarship recipients receive:
• 6 months of free membership
• $400 tool training credit
If your creative, academic, professional pursuits can be bolstered with access to laser cutters, 3D printers, wood shop & metal shop tools, a jewelry studio, sewing studio, graphic design and 3D design software — this scholarship may be for you!
*Scholarship applicants must be at least 18 years old

Generator’s BIPOC Scholarships are made possible by a community of dedicated supporters.
Since mid-2020, our community has raised over $80,000 to narrow the opportunity gap to STEAM fields. We encourage our community to continue this important initiative with a monthly or annual donation to our BIPOC Scholarship Fund.
