Scholarships for Hispanics are offered by different trusts.
Hispanic Scholarship Fund: This fund offers scholarship programs to Hispanic students. A program offered by them is Gates Millennium Scholars Program. This program is offered to students of all ethnic backgrounds including Hispanic. The program was developed by the Billand Melinda Gates’ Foundation in 1999 and is still offering assistance to high school graduates. Students who have a good GPA (grade point average) can also benefit from this program. A minimum of 3.3 GPA is required and students should also show that they cannot support themselves; good leadership abilities are also a requirement.
Margoes Foundation: This is another trust that offers scholarship to Hispanics. It works in collaboration with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. However, this program is area-specific, and you will only be able to get a scholarship if you are a member of the Hispanic community living in an area close to San Francisco. Another requirement is that you should also be an active participant in the College Connect Program. With this scholarship, you can get up to $2,500.
General College Scholarship Program: This program offers academic assistance via the Hispanic Scholarship fund. There is, of course, a lot of competition for winning these awards. This scholarship is available exclusively for Hispanic students who are US citizens or permanent residents and have a GPA of more than 3.0; they should also be looking to study a full-time degree program. Assistance is available for both graduates and undergraduates, but this must be your first degree. The money provided to students is $1,000 to $5,000.
It is very likely that students can win the scholarships for Hispanics offered by the Hispanic Scholarship Fund if they are looking for a degree in technology, science, mathematics, or engineering. The sponsor for these scholarships is Proctor and Gamble Company. The Hispanic students looking to get these scholarships should be attending high school on a full-time degree in the US or some other acceptable territory.
You will need to fill in complete information in the FAFSA form before you can apply for the scholarship. The FAFSA makes the decision about the amount of economic aid that you will receive, and it also has say in the students who are selected by the committee. Students who are interested in getting more information about scholarships for Hispanic students can visit the Hispanic scholarship fund. You can also get guidance from your school or from a financial aid counselor.
