About Hispanic Scholarship Fund
Hispanic Scholarship Fund provides support services and scholarships to as many deserving students, HSF Scholars, and Alumni as it can, while also empowering parents and students with the information and tools they need to complete a higher education successfully.
This investment enhances our region and provides opportunities for students while also fostering the growth of a dynamic and varied labor force. It also benefits the local economy.
The board, sponsors, and partners of the scholarship fund have a special understanding of the ongoing need for high-quality education and the impact that scholarship support can have on a student’s academic success.
Since 2000, 411 Hispanic Heritage Scholarships worth more than $1.9 million have been given out by the scholarship fund and its collaborators.
