The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) is the nation's leading organization supporting Hispanic higher education. HSF's vision is to strengthen America by advancing college education among Hispanic Americans. During its 29-year history, HSF has awarded more than 68,000 scholarships in excess of $144 million to Hispanic students.
Since 1932 LULAC Councils have been selling tacos, tamales, having dances, etc., to raise monies for scholarships that are given to Hispanic students meeting certain guidelines. Several years ago the LULAC National Educational Service Centers (LNESC), began the LULAC National Scholarship Fund. LNESC raises monies through donations from national corporations, while the LULAC local councils continue raising their monies the old fashion way.
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) offers several scholarships. These scholarships are designed to encourage and assist Latino students pursue careers in journalism. Hispanics remain woefully underrepresented in mainstream U.S. newsrooms. One of NAHJ’s goals is to help more qualified Hispanic students to move from the classroom to the newsroom. NAHJ offers scholarships to college undergraduates and graduate students pursuing careers as print, photo, broadcast or online journalism.
You must plan to attend a college or a university as a full-time student for the entire academic year in order to be eligible for an NAHJ scholarship. Only students who attend or plan to attend schools within the United States or Puerto Rico are eligible for NAHJ’s scholarships.
