Access to quality education is a human right. And until that access is equally distributed, there’s work to be done.
Students who are Hispanic make up more than a fifth of the total student population attending universities and colleges within the US. Around 60% of them will require financial aid and often are financially disadvantaged compared to their peers from other racial groups.
The Hispanic Empowerment No-Essay Scholarship is meant to encourage diversity in academia. This $750 award will help high school seniors or current undergraduate students who are Hispanic pay their tuition or student loans.
The application deadline is Apr 16, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 16, 2022.
The scholarship award is $750 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 16, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
