When will I hear back to know if I was selected?
You will receive an email mid September 2021 to know the status of your application.
What are you looking for in an applicant?

Is this scholarship renewable?
Can these scholarships be used for any major?
Do I have to be Hispanic or Latinx to apply?
Are there any restrictions on the type of school I’ll be attending in the Fall? Is this only for students enrolling full-time at a four year university?
There are currently no restrictions on the institutions a student may attend. You are eligible for a scholarship as long as you are attending an accredited institution for at least part-time.
Am I eligible to apply if I completed and passed a General Education Development (GED) test?
What do you consider a first generation college student?
A first-generation student means neither of your parent(s) completed their bachelor's degree. You can still be first-generation if your older siblings went to college.
What is considered to be an undocumented student?
What is considered to be a single-parent household?
Can I win more than one scholarship?
Special thank you to all our individual donors (current college students, teachers/professors, college graduates) who made this possible.
