Latino Scholarships

Latino Scholarships, also sometimes known as Hispanic Scholarships, are offered by a number of companies, organizations and schools, resulting in a more culturally diverse experience for all involved. If you have Latin/Hispanic heritage, you would be wise to conduct a free scholarship search and check the appropriate boxes to indicate your race and ethnicity to ensure you are made aware of all of the aforementioned opportunities.

The Pew Research Center reports that educational attainment among U.S. Latino and Hispanic students has increased significantly in recent years. Dropout rates are declining and college enrollment has drastically increased since 2013. In fact, Hispanics are reportedly the largest minority group on U.S. college campuses. Furthermore, they are significantly less likely than other groups to have student debt - thanks to scholarships, federal aid, and attendance at schools with lower tuition.

Some Latina 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.

Explore the scholarship opportunities as provided below and also conduct a free scholarship search to find other scholarships for which you may qualify.
