Hispanic Scholarships

Colleges are always looking to diversify their campuses and to make their schools more accessible to students of all ethnicities, economic backgrounds and religious beliefs. For this reason, many scholarships are restricted to minority students, including Hispanic students. A great number of companies, organizations and schools offer scholarships, particularly for minority and female students. Some popular organizations such as the ¡Adelante! Fund and Ronald McDonald House Charity offer prestigious, large dollar awards to deserving students. If you qualify, find how you can be rewarded for being of Hispanic descent when it comes to supporting your higher education dreams.

Within the last few years, The Pew Research Center recorded that educational attainment among U.S. Hispanic and Latino students increased significantly and furthermore, account for the largest minority group on U.S. college campuses. Hispanics and Latinos are also significantly less likely than other groups to have student debt - thanks to scholarships, federal aid, and attendance at schools with lower tuition.

Some Hispanic scholarships may require an essay or video, but the common thread is that they are available to those with Hispanic or Latino bloodlines. We acknowledge and help find awards to honor the accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino students in the United States. September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month, so take a moment to celebrate your heritage and cultural uniqueness by applying for college scholarships.

Below are examples of Hispanic scholarships that vary in criteria and submission requirements. For additional information about scholarships based on ethnicity or other criteria, you may conduct a free college scholarship search at Scholarships.com.
