Despite recent increases in college diversity, many Hispanic students are still left without access to higher education. 

57% of Hispanic children grow up in poor or near-poor homes, leading to a lack of the financial resources necessary to pursue college. With college costs growing, it’s difficult or impossible for low-income students to afford their education without taking out crippling student debt.

This scholarship seeks to support underserved Hispanic students in Texas so they can have the resources they need to pursue higher education.    

Any Hispanic first-generation and/or low-income high school junior or senior in Texas may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us what motivates you to be successful and why your education is important to you.
