Hispanic League Scholarship
The Hispanic League, in keeping with their mission to improve the quality of life for Hispanics/Latinos through promoting community inclusion, education, health and multicultural understanding, has established this program to provide scholarships for deserving students. In 2019 we were able to award 43 scholarships to some extraordinary students looking to continue their education! Counting the amount given this year we have now surpassed $1,000,000 in scholarships given since the program began.
The 2019-2020 Scholarship Application is now available between October 2, 2019 - January 6, 2020 for the 2020-2021 Scholarships.
Please see Other Scholarship Opportunities for funding and deadlines.
