Hispanic Grants and Scholarships for College
Equal access to education is essential for the success of our society,
and Hispanic scholarships and student grants help make sure that
all deserving students have the opportunity to pursue their goals.
Hispanic grants and scholarships are specifically set aside for
students and potential students of Hispanic descent. These grants
are sourced in several different ways, and they have different qualifications
for eligibility, depending on the purpose and goals of the funding
Types of Hispanic Student Grants
There are many different types of student grants for Hispanic students.
Some are specific to certain career choices. For example, Hispanic
communities are often underrepresented in medicine and health care,
so students pursuing these areas may be eligible for grants dedicated
to that specific purpose.
Other student grant opportunities come directly from colleges and
universities. Many of these universities do not have student bodies
that accurately reflect the diversity of the larger population.
They may offer specific student grants and scholarship assistance
to make their schools more lucrative to college-bound minority students.
Still other student grants are aimed at students who face other
challenges. For example, the “My First My Family” fund
supports Hispanic students who are financially disadvantaged and
are the first in their family to attend college.
Even when applying for Hispanic-specific student grants, it’s
still a very good idea to apply for the federal Pell grants as well.
These grants rarely conflict with one another, so in most cases,
students can receive some level of aid based on financial need in
addition to other grants specific to background, career path, and
Where To Find Student Grants For Hispanic Students
As mentioned above, one place to look for funding is through the
individual institution where you plan to attend. For industry- or
background-specific students’ grant opportunities, contact
the Congressional Hispanic caucus Institute, which maintains a comprehensive
list of the various Hispanic student grants available.
