P&G’s Venus Razor Brand Creates Scholarship Fund For Houston Latinas

September 7, 2011: 05:25 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s Venus Goddess Fund for Education, launched by Gillette Venus razors in February 2011 with spokesperson Jennifer Lopez, is launching a scholarship program for young Latinas. With a goal of empowering Hispanic women through education, Venus is offering  $40,000 in scholarships to Houston, Texas-area students who apply and share their experiences on what motivates them to pursue their goals. The scholarships are open to all Latina students residing in the Houston metro area who are planning to enter college to pursue a two- or four-year degree and have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. P&G says Latinos have the lowest high school and college completion rates of any racial or ethnic group.
