The Latino Resources College Scholarship Fund was launched in 2014 as a responsive Latino student success initiative. Through the Latino Resources College Scholarship Fund monetary awards are made to exceptional Latino college students in order to support increased Latino college completion rates. Latino students who are pursuing college education goals at a two-year community college, vocational school, four-year university - as well as graduate students - are invited to apply for our competitive scholarship awards. This program invests in Latino students who demonstrate academic excellence, civic engagement, leadership and financial need. This student success initiative is aligned with the mission of the Latino Resources nonprofit organization and its commitment to connect Latinos to resources, services and educational programs that promote active Latino civic participation within their respective communities.
